Come and be a part of Maurizio and Tobias' most extreme journey of their lives and their campaign to clean the oceans from plastic pollution.
There will be no external support at any stage
Each rower will burn roughly 5,000 calories and consume 10 liters of water a day
We will be on a 2 hours row – 2 hours rest schedule 24/7 until we arrive
With a distance of 5,000 km, it will take approximately 1.5 million strokes to complete to cross the ocean
More people summit Mt. Everest in 1 year than the total of people who have rowed across Atlantic!
Get an impression of this wild adventure!
An Italian from Venezuela, a German with Indian roots, and the electric energy of New York City - it was a match made in adventure heaven!

Our Mission Partners - Thank you for your amazing support!
Our Mission: Cleaner Oceans for us and Future Generations
The purpose of Dare to Row is to raise money and awareness for The Ocean
Cleanup, an international non-profit organization that is leading the biggest Ocean Cleanup in history.
We are fighting for cleaner oceans by:
Organizing events and a social media campaign to raise funds for the Ocean Cleanup and awareness of the increasing problem of marine micro-plastic pollution.
Collecting water probes for micro-plastic analysis. We are exploring options to fit our boat with cameras for data collection during the row. The thereby gained information can be used by The Ocean Cleanup to plan the ideal cleaning routes in years to come.
Participating and coordinating cleanup events to remove litter and trash, including plastics and other non-biodegradable materials from our beaches, lakes and rivers.
By supporting our campaign, you'll be able to:
Contribute to the largest ocean cleanup in history.
Improve the lives of all marine species and help save some from extinction.
So grab your paddles (or just a megaphone), and let’s make waves for a cleaner ocean. Join the fun and let’s tackle ocean plastic together!
