Catharina “Cätschi“ Streit, Meike Ramuschkat, Stefanie “Steffi” Kluge and Timna Kluge rowed in their high-tech boat “Doris”. With their time of 42 days and 46 minutes they are also the fastest Germans who ever crossed the Atlantic in a rowing boat.Could not scrape from Instagram (scraping is a deprecated method to retrieve images).
During the race the ladies from Hamburg had to be prepared for all eventualities, using only the best and most reliable equipment possible. Boat “Doris” is an eight meter long high tech machine and the ladies followed a rigid schedule of rowing and sleeping after months of training.
While rowing for two hours at a time through rough seas, sweating, spindrift and salt water in their faces, professional skin protection was essential. Their favorite product on the journey was the SWOX SPF50 Lotion with maximum sun protection, non-greasy, hypoallergenic, paraben & perfume free formula, and extra waterproof guaranty.
Hamburg movie makers Silvia und Guido Weihermüller covered the journey of team RowHHome at the toughest rowing race in the world from the beginning. In Summer 2020 the couple will release a movie called „Wellenbrecherinnen“. While enjoying the movie, everybody will be able to take a seat in „Doris“ and cross the Atlantic Ocean. Until then small episodes of Hamburg’s RowHHomes journey at the toughest rowing race in the world are available on the website.
