Brightsides Atlantic Dash – their progress so far

The Brightsides are aiming to raise £250,000 for Get A-Head and Meningitis Now.

The Brightsides Atlantic Dash

The Brightsides – Rod Adlington, Guy Minshull, Anna Williams, and Alex Perry – are taking part in the Atlantic Dash, a 3,000-mile row across the Atlantic Ocean, which left Lanzarote on 3 January 2024 and will finish in Antigua.

The oarsome foursome is aiming to complete the row in around 50 days and raise £250,000 for Get A-Head – a cancer charity fighting head and neck diseases – and Meningitis Now, the UK’s leading meningitis charity.

Where are they now?

The map below shows a live update of the positioning of the Brightsides’ boat ‘Mrs Nelson’, which is the green boat. 

The team is taking on the race in honour of Barney Adlington, who would have been 21 this year. The son of crew member Rod, Barney passed away from meningitis at the age of three within 24 hours of being diagnosed. The tragedy galvanised Rod to make fundraising for meningitis research a central part of his life.
