Come in number four, come in and sleep
Four rowers trying to row 3,000 miles across the Atlantic this winter will be relying on Mammoth foam mattresses to get enough sleep.
Team Tyne Innovation is a crew from the Tyne Rowing Club taking part in the 2018 Talisker Whisky Atlantic Challenge, rowing from the Canary Islands to Antigua & Barbuda, beginning in December.
‘Sleep will be the cornerstone of our daily routine and absolute foundation for health and recovery during the challenge. We need resources that will provide the optimal comfort for rest and rehabilitation, which are vital for the rigorous and unrelenting rowing schedule we’re embarking on. Without the right kind of rest, we will majorly jeopardise our chances of completing the 3,000 mile challenge,’ said team member Phil Kite.
‘It is great to have Mammoth on board with its bespoke mattresses which will aid recovery as much as possible within such cramped and chaotic conditions.’
‘We are over the moon to support the Team Tyne team in their tough challenge. We wish the team the best of luck and we’re looking forward to their valuable feedback on the role our mattresses played in helping them reach that final mile,’ said John Tuton, Mammoth founder and md.
