Rowing the Atlantic for Children

On Wednesday 13th December 2023, Bali Children’s Project supporters Danny and Janik embark on an epic race across the Atlantic, all for charity.

Long term supporters of Bali Children’s Project, the duo have planned for years for the race and now the time has come for the voyage.

Known as ‘the world’s toughest row’, the endurance race challenges participants to row 3000 miles from La Gomera in Spain to Antigua in the Caribbean.

Danny and Janik’s team, under their registered charity Not Today, is a two man, human-only powered row boat.

Rowing for Children

We are Janik and Danny, two old-school friends from Germany who have decided to row across the Atlantic Ocean to raise awareness for children’s education. We take part in the World’s Toughest Row – Atlantic 2023. The WTR, the world’s toughest rowing race, will take us 3000 miles across the Atlantic Ocean. Our rowing boat is 100% human-powered, unsupported, and self-sufficient.

We have chosen two charities that we want to support with our expedition. Both organisations advocate for children education. While Ozeankind concentrates on educating children on plastic pollution, the Bali Children’s Project focuses on making education available for children from poor circumstances in rural Bali.

Support the Team

Danny and Janik have worked incredibly hard to secure sponsorships, the boat and all training required to complete the race, and now they are asking people to support their effort too.

As well as covering race costs – the team are planning to donate as much as possible to Bali Children’s Project and fellow charity Ozeankind.

Once we have covered our race cost with the help of corporate sponsorships, we will start a public fundraiser. All money raised from the fundraiser, the sale of our boat after the race and further sponsorships will go towards our chosen charities. We are aiming to raise 150.000 EUR for charity.

Supporters of their effort can help by visiting their donate page.
