TEAM SCANDLINES - ATLANTIC ROWING RACE 2005


Team Scandlines is the first 100% Danish team in the world’s hardest and longest rowing competition- the Atlantic Rowing Race. Rowers Søren Sprogøe and Christian Petersen, who have been preparing for this race for many months, have both won gold in Denmark’s National Championship in Long-Distance Rowing.
Søren and Christian will be competing in the fourth running of the Woodvale Atlantic Rowing Race, which was launched in 1997. Along with 50 other rowing boats, they will push off from La Gomera on November 27, 2005. From the Canary Islands, they will row 5000 km of Atlantic Ocean before making landfall at Antigua in the West Indies.
