SOLO, UNSUPPORTED AND NON-STOP ACROSS THE ATLANTIC OCEAN

Start: November 2024

The Challenge: Text

Kyle's Guinness World Record-setting journey across the Atlantic - leaving from Mainland Africa (Morocco) to Mainland North America (Miami) - will require him to contend with; severe sleep deprivation, hallucinations and complete isolation for the anticipated 4 months at sea!


With waves regularly exceeding 40ft, the ocean is an uncompromising leveller. Putting aside the mental demands of this monumental worlds-first challenge, this adventure will require the completion of over 2 million oar strokes and see Kyle losing an estimated 12-18kg, despite consuming over 6,000 calories per day!

Battling the Atlantic storms, navigating shark infested waters and traversing international shipping lanes will all become part of daily business - all in the 24ft ocean rowing boat that he'll be calling home - in the name of adventure and raising awareness of skin cancer.

Join Kyle on this incredible journey as he embarks on a solo Atlantic crossing, not just for personal glory but to make waves in the fight against skin cancer. Follow his adventure (@TheOARburnRower), be inspired, and contribute to the cause that fuels his determination – a world where early detection saves lives and memories of loved ones are not lost to this silent enemy.

...there's a reason why more people have summited Everest or been to space, than have rowed any ocean solo!
