Atlantic Ambition
Ed Wilson

What are you most excited about?

I can’t wait to be out on the water rowing, with nobody else around us for miles, after surviving our first storm! I’m sure it will be a humbling experience. I’m also looking forward to the satisfaction of completing the challenge and finally being able to let off some flares!

There’s talk you’re the keenest angler of the team. How confident are you on catching fish to feed the crew?

I’d say my confidence is not at all supported by any track record unfortunately. I’m also fairly confident that if we do actually catch a fish, we won’t know what to do with it once on board. So either ill try and serve up a fresh sashimi entrée, or more likely release the fish back into the wild.

What are your other passions outside of ocean rowing?

After having moved to Australia, I’ve spent a lot of time surfing, or at least trying to surf. You can generally find me on weekends getting in the water down at Manly beach, probably getting in everybody’s way!
