A group of four local veterans, Billy Cimino, Cameron Hansen, Hupp Huppmann, and Paul Lore are taking part in the “Talisker Whisky Atlantic Challenge” to raise money to combat veteran suicides. So far the group has raised $770,000   Individuals from various countries attempt to row across the Atlantic Ocean.    The race began in  San Sebastian in LaGomera, Canary Island, and will end at  Antigua, located in the eastern Caribbean Sea.   Atlantic Campaign race officials predict an arrival date on January 29.

Foar From Home is the center purple boat in the group of 6. The estimated arrival date in Antigua is January 29.  Today is the 44th day at sea.
