Helix Energy Solutions is thrilled to announce our Corporate Sponsorship for The Bubbleheads
In December 2020, The Bubbleheads will board an ocean rowing boat and attempt to race – unaided - across the Atlantic Ocean, the second largest ocean in the world, for the Talisker Whiskey Atlantic Challenge. Being fully self-sufficient while rowing across the Atlantic Ocean, daily responsibilities will include navigation across the Atlantic, monitoring weather systems, desalinating water for cooking and hydration, preparing and eating military-style ration packs, catching fish for additional protein sources, undertaking any necessary and essential maintenance and remaining motivated and positive – despite what Mother Nature throws at them that day.
The Bubbleheads will endure endless days and nights at sea as they row a punishing 3,000 miles from La Gomera, Canary Islands, Spain, to Antigua & Barbuda in The Caribbean to raise money for Wessex Cancer Trust in the UK and St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital in the United States.
Show your support by donating directly to the The Bubbleheads to help fund the build of a new Rannoch R45 boat (an ocean rowing boat builder synonymous with success in previous campaigns), technical and life-saving equipment, food and other operational costs.
