On the 28th January 2019, Kevinia Francis, Elvira Bell, Samara Emmanuel and Christal Clashing made history as the first all-black team to ever row an ocean by crossing the Atlantic ocean in 47 days 8 hours and 25 minutes.
Inspired by their historic feat, they have come together to create a rowing-based tourism and youth outreach project called the Team Antigua Island Girls Wellness Adventure. The first part of their project is a unique coastal rowing experience blended with coastal beach clean-ups and ocean education marketed at the traditional tourist that visits the shores of Antigua and Barbuda. The second prong is a sports tourism offer that enables teams and individuals who want to row across oceans, the opportunity to train in the coastal and open waters of Antigua and Barbuda. The third is a youth outreach programme that encourages young people to learn coastal rowing and develop ocean awareness skills and capabilities.
