The CWF Africa to the Americas 2013 expedition will span 60-80 days and an ocean’s breadth between Dakar, Senegal to Miami, USA.
Departing from Dakar on January 23rd, 2013, the crew of four men are rowing the open ocean self-supported, 24 hours per day in 1-, 2- and 4-hour shifts.

This nearly 3659 nm Atlantic-crossing and Guinness Record attempt (first to row from mainland Africa to mainland USA) leaves no room for mistakes, and much less for sleeping quarters on their 29-foot rowboat.
This ocean-crossing demands that the rowing team demonstrate expertise in meteorology, navigation, nutrition, oceanography, technology, shipboard and oceanic emergencies, expedition planning, sports medicine, interpersonal communication, leadership and, of course, perseverance.
