FACING THE ATLANTIC 63 Days 16 Hours 8 Minutes

FACING THE ATLANTIC 63 Days 16 Hours 8 Minutes

It took Bertie and James 63 Days 16 Hours 8 Minutes to cross the Atlantic Ocean from La Gomera to Barbados. They suffered every set back imaginable from broken oars to capsizing, but they made it. Raising over £365,000 ($579,000) for Facing The World.

CONGRATULATIONS !!! You are true heroes.

The latest update of what Stephen Moyer’s fans have raised is $21,000. Thank you all for your generosity!

Stephen really wanted to be in Barbados to welcome his friends but unfortunately his work schedule did not permit it.

 

Watch in the video how they arrived in Barbados and their first reactions to the enormous challenge they have completed.

    I imagine they’ll be walking on their “sea legs” for some time!
    I cannot imagine what it’s like for them now.
    The relief, the pride in accomplishment, and also the letdown:
    Trying to relax and absorb the fact that it’s really over. Wow!

    Just an unbelievable journey! Thanks for posting the video.
    It’s so nice to see them reunite with family and friends.
