Aurora sponsors rowing challenge

August 5 - Queensland, Australia headquartered Aurora Global Logistics - a leading international yacht transport company - is sponsoring Andrew Abrahams in the Adventure 4 a Cure -Talisker Whiskey Atlantic Challenge Solo Row 2013.

Abrahams is Australia's long distance rowing world record holder and on December 2, 2013 he will take part in one of the world's toughest nautical challenges.

Adventure 4 a Cure - Talisker Whiskey Atlantic Challenge Solo Row 2013 will see Abrahams attempt to row across 5,000 km (3,000 nautical miles) from San Sebastian De La Gomera in the Canary Islands across to English Harbour, Antigua to raise USD500,000 for disadvantaged children.
In the process, Abrahams will have to overcome harsh weather conditions and be completed self-sufficient while at sea.
Jason Roberts, director of Aurora Global Logistics, said: "Aurora is thrilled to be a part of Andrew's quest to raise money for a very worthy cause and feels honoured to be a part of something so humbling and exciting.  Aurora has become a key sponsor, as we felt it was a wonderful opportunity to see Andrew become the fastest Australian to row solo across the Atlantic Ocean."
