About Pacific Triow
We - Jess, Charlotte and Taylor - met taking part in The Talisker Whisky Atlantic Challenge, rowing 3000 miles across the Atlantic Ocean, from December 2021 - January 2022. We all loved our crossing so much and made over £140k for our chosen charities in the process, that when the opportunity to tackle another ocean came around, we grabbed it with both hands. In a world where so many women are often told they can’t, we want to highlight what we are capable of, when given the opportunity.
Meet the Crew
We are three ocean-rowing adventurers, with a second crossing and another World Record attempt in our sights. Our mission is to make it easier for a generation of women to live their wildest dreams, and to raise as much money as possible for our chosen charities.
Jess is not one to shy away from adventure! Signing up to row across the Atlantic with four strangers while living and working in Germany in 2019, she completed her crossing as part of a truly international team of four, In Deep Ship. They made land in Antigua after 42 days at sea, completing a world first for a Mixed Four, 3 women and 1 man. She is now a freelance designer back in the UK, after 8 years at adidas.
Atlantic crossing time: 42 days, 7 hours and 17 minutes
World record: Fastest female trio to row across the Atlantic Ocean
Charlotte has been rowing since the age of 13, leaving the river for her first ocean crossing with friends Kat and Abby as part of team ExtraOARdinary. Together, they set a World Record for the fastest female trio across the Atlantic Ocean by seven days. Not her first taste of living wild, in 2016 Charlotte hiked the length of America; 2,600 miles along the Pacific Crest Trail, starting south of San Diego on the border with Mexico and heading north along the west coast of the US, finishing 5 months later, eight miles past the Canadian border. Charlotte now works as a Marketing Lead at Mercer Marsh Benefits.
Atlantic Crossing Time: 40 days, 0 hours, 37 minutes.
World record: Fastest mixed trio to row the Atlantic Ocean
By day, Taylor is a Director at Stobo Castle Health Spa. But her adventurous spirit took her first to the summit of Kilimanjaro in 2019, and then on to the Atlantic Ocean as part of team Atlantic Nomads. Taylor was the first of us to make land in Antigua after 40 days at sea, setting the World Record for the Fastest Mixed Trio, with her two male crewmates Tom and James.
