On De­cem­ber 15, Harry Went­worth-stan­ley of the Sav­ills Lon­don Devel­op­ment Land Team de­parted on the ex­pe­di­tion of a life­time—the Talisker Whisky At­lantic Chal­lenge. He and three friends are cur­rently half­way across the vast ocean, at­tempt­ing the mam­moth row from Le Gomera in the Ca­nary Is­lands to An­tigua, to raise money for the James Went­worth-stan­ley Memo­rial Fund, which aims to tackle anx­i­ety, de­pres­sion and sui­cide among young peo­ple.

The 3,000-mile voy­age is widely con­sid­ered to be one of the tough­est chal­lenges there is—more peo­ple have climbed Ever­est, reached the North Pole or ven­tured into space than have suc­cess­fully rowed the At­lantic. To do­nate, visit www.rowforjames.com
