AN ABERDEEN duo are to set off this month on an extreme rowing race across the Atlantic.
Personal trainers Duncan Brown, 34, and Robert Strachan, 26, will represent the North-east in the 3,000-mile Talisker Whisky Atlantic Challenge.
The duo, both from Torry, are also raising money for the ARCHIE Foundation and Great Ormond Street Hospital.
The pair have been training for the race – from La Gomera in the Canary Islands to Antigua – for more than two years.
Robert said: “We’re ready to get on the water.
“It’s been pretty mad, pretty hectic.
“The record for the race is 41 days so we’re aiming to get pretty close to that, if not beat it.”
