LEARN A LITTLE MORE...

As “The OARburn Rower”, Kyle will be at sea, by himself and completely unsupported for the entirety of his 3000-mile Atlantic crossing. Leaving La Gomera in mid-December 2024, Kyle will arrive in Antigua in early 2025! In addition to being a HUGE personal challenge, the primary aim of the crossing is to raise much needed awareness of skin cancer and the risks associated with prolonged unprotected exposure to the sun. ​


During his time at sea, Kyle will be exposed to the full force of the sun, and everything else Mother Nature has to offer! With daily temperatures easily exceeding 30 degrees, Kyle is unusually – and unfortunately – extremely susceptible to sunburn and therefore skin cancer. For this reason – and having recently lost a close family member to Stage IV Metastasis Melanoma, a form of skin cancer which attacks the vital organs – he has chosen to raise much needed funds for educational programmes and skin cancer prevention outreach projects. 


Kyle also hopes to use the local, national and global media coverage attracted by the Talisker Whisky Atlantic Challenge to reignite the conversation of removing VAT from sunscreens in the UK.
