World's Toughest Row: Sponsoring Derby Adventurer Vic Handley

World's Toughest Row: Sponsoring Derby Adventurer Vic Handley



We at Power & Control are thrilled to throw our support behind Vic Handley, a former company director turned daring adventurer, as he prepares to row solo across the Atlantic Ocean in the World's Toughest Row. Now 70 years old, he sets out to be the second-oldest person ever to complete this incredible feat.

This 3,000-mile transatlantic challenge will see Vic depart from San Sebastian in La Gomera, Canary Islands, aiming to land at Nelson's Dockyard in Antigua. Sleep deprivation, towering waves, and the relentless forces of nature await him. It's a stark reminder of our own human limits, and the extraordinary willpower needed to surpass them.

“After a successful career, I wanted to test myself in a way I never had," says Vic Handley. "Rowing the Atlantic isn't just about physical ability – it's about mental resilience, and a relentless belief in pushing personal boundaries.”

His ambition and tenacity resonated deeply with us. The World's Toughest Row embodies our spirit of overcoming challenges and striving for a brighter future. Supporting Vic reminds us that it's never too late to dream, innovate, and achieve, a philosophy that drives our team in the renewable energy sector.

Sponsorship opportunities still exist and offer businesses the chance to stand alongside Vic. We urge fellow businesses to join us in backing this courageous effort. For sponsorship opportunities, please visit Vic's Page HERE.
