Island Girls set to take kon another ocean

Team Antigua Island Girls, Antigua and Barbuda’s history-making rowers are taking to the water again.

The team, comprising Christal Clashing, Elvira Bell, Kevinia Francis and Samara Emmanuel—will compete in the inaugural Pacific Challenge carded for 2023.

Atlantic Campaigns, the official race organisers of the Talisker Whisky Atlantic Challenge, is also organizing this initiative.

A statement detailed the Pacific Challenge is a 2,800 nautical mile race from Monterey Bay in California to Nawiliwili Harbor in Kauai, Hawaii. The challenge begins on June 12, 2023.

Team Antigua Island Girls launched their Pacific2023 campaign at a press conference on January 24, 2021, at the Antigua and Barbuda Football Association’s Headquarters at Paynters, with the tagline Back on the Row Again.

Team Antigua Island Girls acknowledged that, much like their first, history-making row in the 2018-19 Talisker Whisky Atlantic Challenge, reaching the start line is its own journey.

Fundraising activities will ramp up shortly, and the team has begun training—both physical and mental—as they learned from their freshman experience that it takes more mental strength than brawn to get to the finish line.
