Meet the brave Scots brothers rowing the Atlantic

When three brothers from Edinburgh decided to row across the Atlantic, their fundraising drive saw them pillaging West Coast distilleries for whisky.

Ewan, Jamie and Lachlan MacLean have decided to embark upon one of the most gruelling physical challenges out there – the Talisker Whisky Atlantic Challenge.

An incredible 3,000 miles long, the trio will row across the Atlantic, launching from the shores of La Gomera in the Canary Islands in the hope of seeing the outline of Antigua on the other side.

Taking 40-60 days depending on the weather, it hasn’t been dubbed the world’s toughest rowing race for nothing.
