Wishing you all the success in this great adventure. I was in Antigua in 2018 as the boats were arriving, here is the race board !

We are the North American duo of Lauren “Nini” Champion, and Lisa Roland, pairs team competing in the Talisker Atlantic Challenge in 2022. TWAC is a 3,000nm ocean row beginning in La Gomera, Spain and finishing in English Harbour, Antigua.

Operating as usual

You don’t even need to have a ticket to boat show! We’ll be just outside of the boat show borders!

Come visit us and with a donation to our cause you’ll have the chance to score some Team Ocean Grown merch.! Maybe even a t-shirt to become a part of our Shore Support Team!!!

We’re so excited and hope to you there!!!

Lisa 📷: September and October in the Ionian traditionally has a lot of unpredictable weather and this season was no exception, keeping me pretty on edge with lots of sleepless nights. Am absolutely tickled that I’m tucked away safe in port and sitting out this round 😅

Sitting in bed, sipping on tea and getting caught up on emails, this is going to be the memory that keeps me warm the next time I’m out in the thick of it 😜

Watch out for some exciting news hitting our social media!!!

With Mediterranean season wrapped up, Lisa is so happy to be back in the saddle

Started my first session back with my most favourite 1 minute split intervals, followed by some weight training, getting ready to head back to Athens and make @nikos_koutsobinas proud 🦾

For those who don’t know,
Lisa and I are training separately at the moment, since we are based in different locations.
We call it our “long distance row-lationship”

My amazing trainer (and talented photographer) @theclubaac has developed a training regiment that focuses on building up the muscle groups used in rowing.

This, in combination with cardio and yoga outside of a labor intensive job has me in such great shape!

Did you know:
Rowers burn ~4K calories/day and lose an average of 12 kg (26 lbs) from the transatlantic crossing!

I will definitely have to bulk up before we make it the start line in December of 2022!

Which leads me to a follow up of our last post in my excitement and gratitude for the partnership and development of our nutrient program with @organically_balanced!

PARTNER ANNOUNCEMENT!

We're super stoked to announce a partnership with the lovely @belhenry who is the founder of @organically_balanced

As a professional sailor and member of the legendary Maiden team, Belinda has an intimate understanding of the challenges of trying to stay healthy offshore. Her expertise in health and wellbeing at sea is absolutely vital to our training program and not only preparing our bodies for the row, but keeping them in top form during such a long endurance challenge.

An integrative health practitioner, Bel will be providing education on foundational lifestyle changes and nutrition to improve our health and wellness for our optimal performance in training, during the atlantic row and post race recovery.

In the coming months, we'll be undergoing a number of tests for a comprehensive deep dive into our health, before embarking on our individualized wellbeing plans prepared by Bel. In the lead up to the race, we'll be monitoring and adjusting to get our mineral levels, hormones, intestinal biome, blood saturation and metabolism in check before we set out. We're also very excited to do our post race testing, which will provide an amazing look at how our bodies have reacted to such a strenuous challenge. If you haven't followed yet, check out @organically_balanced and @teamocean.grown to follow along our health journey on our way to TWAC 2022

Throwing back to the #BVI #divefordebris in Trellis Bay, helping to clean up our underwater universe after Hurricane Irma. One of my favorite parts of traveling and working on board yachts is being able to get involved in the international community of #changemakers and meeting so many amazing folks along the way!

Having a sweaty time doing some work on the generator. I've been really proud of how my engineering knowledge and stills have been building over time. It's such an incredibly rewarding and empowering feeling troubleshooting, and fixing an issue 💪

Perks of the job include wakebooarding volcanic craters, and we're not mad about it 🤙

Squeezed in a morning training session between charters. I knew it would tough to balance a really demanding job, with a big training program, and I wasn't wrong. I was all smiles this morning at 0530 but after 30 minutes on the machine, my body began to feel the strain of a 100 hour work week, and my muscles felt empty.

I kept up a light pace for another 4000m, before hitting the mat for a stretch feeling pretty defeated, and disappointment in myself that I couldn't dig in and push harder. While I stretched my stiff, sore muscles, I tried to be kind to myself. While maybe I didn't put up the same numbers I have been, I still woke up at sunrise and made 12kms, qnd thats not nothing.

We often get asked how we train for the mental challenge of rowing an ocean, and this is it. Pushing yourself, but accepting that you cannot be at your strongest and fastest at every moment of every day, still giving yourself credit for what you have accomplished.

Now, off to a busy day prepping for our next trip tomorrow, its showtime!

Since we are slowly building our social media following, I thought I would take a second to introduce myself and why I have decided to take on the #twac2022

My name is Lauren Champion, but I go by my nickname Nini. I grew up in Annapolis, Maryland, and have been working on boats for the past 4 years. This past year, I have been working as a rigging technician, which is a job that continues to test me physically, as well as mentally. In particular I find it tests my patience and precision, reminding me of the importance to take my time. I love that every day presents a different task, and despite only a year under my belt, I feel I some how manage to keep up with my well experienced and supportive team @theriggingco .

I came to the decision to take on the #twac2022 from having the opportunity to witness past rowers arrive in Antigua. As a sailor, this row will be the culmination of my experience at sea. This challenge I have taken on is a seed that has grown in my heart and mind, driven forward by courage. I am so grateful to have found someone as crazy as myself to take this on @lisamarieofthesea. In fact, the challenge has already begun, with a focus in sourcing sponsorship. Thank you for following our journey! Please don’t hesitate to reach out in ways to support us or any sponsorship leads!

After a stressful few days, an early morning row was just what I needed! Land training is translating beautifully into better technique on the water and more power in each stroke.

This morning, rowing alone on the simulator at sunrise, I felt it for the first time. The early hour meant that the normally busy port of Piraeus was silent, and I closed my eyes, felt the water beneath my oars and the morning sun starting to hit my face. I imagined being 1,000nm from shore, and I loved every moment.
