The Atlantic Crossing

2 school


40 to 60

We are Janik and Danny, two old-school friends from Germany who have decided to row across the Atlantic Ocean to raise awareness for children’s education. We take part in the Talisker Whisky Atlantic Challenge 2023. The TWAC, the world’s toughest rowing race, will take us 3000 miles across the Atlantic Ocean. Our rowing boat is 100% human-powered, unsupported, and self-sufficient.

Our Approach

We are rowing across the Atlantic Ocean to raise money for children’s education. An expedition like this requires intensive physical and mental preparation. It requires funds to buy a professional boat, reliable gear and supplies. In this video, Danny breaks down our expedition plan into two minutes.

Our Charities

We have chosen two charities that we want to support with our expedition. Both organisations advocate for children education. While Ozeankind concentrates on educating children on plastic pollution, the Bali Children’s Project focuses on making education available for children from poor circumstances in rural Bali.

Who are we?

We are Janik Prottung and Danny Schleicher. We are embarking on an extraordinary adventure in December 2023. The Talisker Whisky Atlantic Challenge. We are facing the challenge of rowing 4800 kilometres across the Atlantic. Now add to that the fact that we both live on different continents of the world. That’s where things get interesting.

With our team name, we want to empower others to ask themselves “Why Not Today?”


Our amazing sponsors help us tackle this crazy adventure. Together we continue to raise money for children’s education. Click the link below to find all our partners and learn how you can get involved!
