Nick Hollis Completes Atlantic Adventure! SEARCH NEWS

Nick Hollis celebrating his incredible achievement

On Friday 2nd February at 02:30 AM local time, Nick Hollis, onboard his boat ‘Kraken’ crossed the finish line of the World’s Toughest Row in a time of 50 days, 20 hours and 49 minutes. Since December, Nick has been rowing solo all the way from the Canary Islands to Antigua, an incredible 3,000 miles to raise funds for WLT!

This amazing feat is just one part of Nick’s ‘721 Challenge’ (7 summits, 2 poles, 1 ocean). With seven summits and the south pole already conquered, this latest achievement means that the North Pole is the final piece of the challenge.

Everyone from World Land Trust would like to say a huge thank you and well done to Nick and his team for their tireless efforts to make this challenge happen and for Nick’s incredible hard work and determination – it has been so inspiring to watch this journey unfold.
