The Skyetime Podcast – Mark Sealey and the Talisker Transatlantic Rowing Challenge

In the latest episode of the Skyetime Podcast, Simon Cousins talks to Atlantic Rower, Mark Sealey who last month completed the Talisker Transatlantic Challenge, carrying the new Skye flag on the transom of the Force Genesis boat.

His four-person team completed the 2800 nautical miles from La Gomera to Antigua in fifty days, despite significant technical problems along the way. In the interview, Mark talks about the physical and mental challenges of the journey including a scary encounter with an eighteen foot long Blue Marlin!

The Skye sponsors of the Force Genesis team were: 

  • Macleod and MacCallum
  • Cuillin Hills Hotel
  • Sitekit
  • Spindrift Boat Trips
  • Sonas Collection
  • The Chippy
  • Jansvans
  • SkyeConnect
