Nunes, West leave for Talisker Whisky Atlantic Challenge today


Joseph Nunes and Travis West dubbed Team Antigua Pairs will leave the island today for England where they will overnight.

They will then be subjected to a COVID-19 test before moving on to the Canary Islands to participate in the Talisker Whisky Atlantic Challenge.

Nunes said preparations have been hectic as there have been several unexpected changes.

New paperwork had to be completed because of the lockdown in England paired with the uncertainty that has accompanied the coronavirus pandemic.

“Things change every day,” his teammate West said, “and it has hampered training somewhat, but we are prepared and ready for what lies ahead.”

The last team from Antigua to take on the challenge were the Island Girls who became the first all black team to row across the Atlantic.
