Woodvale Challenge Ltd was founded in 2004 and runs the Atlantic Rowing race and Round Britain rowing race.  We also put together elite Works Teams crews to set and break world records. binary options

We have built more ocean going rowing boats and have supported more individuals safely across oceans than anyone else in the world. We pride ourselves on offering a second to none service, ensuring that every individual who approaches us has the best possible chance of crossing an ocean by receiving personalised advice with knowledge and experience readily available when needed. Our staff are carefully selected for their experience and commitment to the sport of ocean rowing and our aim is to continue to see the list of successful, and above all safe, ocean crossings expand through supporting both entrants in our races and also offering a fountain of knowledge to those who want to go it alone and row independently. binary trading

Woodvale boat designs hold many world records for their crossings, and their resident Ocean Rower, Simon Chalk, holds Guinness records including "The youngest ever person to row solo across the Indian Ocean (2003).  Ben Fogle and James Cracknell famously competed in the Woodvale Atlantic Rowing race in 2005 bringing the sport of Ocean Rowing into the spotlight.  The Woodvale Atlantic Rowing race has recently been voted the "Toughest Athletic Challenge" by TopTenz.com and is widely known to be "The World's Toughest Rowing Race".
