Talisker Whisky Atlantic Challenge 2015 - Rowing Race

I am enjoying following the Talisker Whisky Atlantic Challenge 2015 - Rowing Race which started 20 December 2015.

"teams will row more than 3000 nautical miles across the world’s second largest ocean, the Atlantic. Rowers will head west from San Sebastian in La Gomera to Nelson’s Dockyard English Harbour, Antigua."

Map showing progress of the boats is updated every 4 hours.
