Atlantic Rowers, Joseph Nunes and Travis Weste have officially donated the proceeds from their event to the Rotary Club of Antigua Sundown.
The Club said it received USD $10,305 dollars from the pair, who rowed 3,000 nautical miles across the Atlantic to raise funds for the charity organisation.
This was done through the sale of T-shirts and Rash Guards, along with donations from sponsors.
It took the men 47 days, 6 hours, and 57 minutes to row from La Gomera, Spain to English Harbour, Antigua during the 2020 Talisker Whisky Atlantic Challenge.
The Rotary Club of Antigua Sundown plans to utilize a part of the funds raised, to purchase equipment to support the efforts of Antigua and Barbuda Search and Rescue (ABSR), which is a voluntary organization dedicated to saving lives in Antigua and Barbuda and the surrounding waters.
Funds raised would also be used to support other Rotary Sundown local community projects.
