Four (extra)ordinary women rowing the Atlantic in 2023 to combat climate change.

We are the WaveBreakers. We are four women that are going to row the Atlantic Ocean in December 2023 to protect your planet. We are raising money for three charities that use technology to  to protect our world from the effects of climate change.

One of the biggest challenges of the crossing is funding the extensive list of kit and courses needed to ensure a safe and viable crossing. As well as that, there are costs to set up the tools we need to communicate our cause and drum up the support needed. Help us raise these crucial funds, to give us the platform to raise the money for the charities.

If you’d like to come on board with our adventure and sponsor us, please get in touch. We can offer amazing exposure to your brand on an incredibly exciting, national and international, platform.  We’d love to hear from you!
