Roseview backs Team Seasoar

Sash window manufacturer Roseview Windows is backing Team Seasoar in their quest to row across the Atlantic Ocean.

The team is taking part in The World’s Toughest Row, which starts in the San Sebastian de la Gomera in the Canary Islands on 12 December. It will then take at least 30 days to row the 3,000 miles across the Atlantic to the finishing line in Antigua. Throughout the challenge the team of four will row for 24 hours a day, with each team member rowing for two hours and sleeping for two hours in rotation.

As part of the challenge Team Seasoar is raising money for Lyme Disease UK (LDUK). LDUK supports people living with the sometimes devastating effects of Lyme disease. They also provide support for affected families and raise awareness of Lyme disease in the UK.

Roseview heard about Team Seasoar at the G23 Awards, when one of their guests – well known industry figure Sam Weber – mentioned his participation.

Discussing the challenge, Sam said: “I’ve climbed Kilimanjaro and taken part in an SAS jungle survival course in the Amazon, but rowing across the Atlantic will be my toughest challenge yet! The World’s Toughest Row will push our physical and mental strength to the limit. We’re expecting waves that measure up to 20 feet high, and on average we’ll lose 12kg each, while burning 5,000 calories. By the time the challenge starts we’ll have been training for more than 18 months.”

Talking about their sponsorship of Team Seasoar, Roseview director Paul Bygrave said: “When Sam told us about what he’s doing we were awestruck. It’s such a tough challenge. But if anyone can do it, Sam and his teammates can.

“We jumped at the chance to sponsor them, supporting both the team and their fantastic choice of charity, Lyme Disease UK. We’ll be following their journey and cheering them on through every stroke, albeit from dry land!”
