Atlantic Guardsman Arrives in La Gomera

Three weeks today and we will be underway! I think we are ready. We fly down to La Gomera next Saturday (30th) to be reunited with the boat which has arrived safely and is sitting on the dock waiting for us.

We have a boat inspection on the 2nd of December and then we have ten days to get everything tested and ready. The race starts on December 12.

We will have a BGan satellite router on board the boat. This will allow limited and intermittent connectivity to the internet while at sea and we will be posting updates when we can to our Social Media sites so you should be able to see how we are getting on. You will also be able to follow us on the race website The coverage on the website is very good and we will be tracked in real time across the water. Hopefully the Atlantic Guardsman icon will be somewhere near the front!

We have featured on British Forces TV. See the video on our Facebook page
