Four RAF pilots, one tiny boat and an epic race across 3,000 miles of ocean. This winter, follow The Atlantic Flyers as they row across the Atlantic in support of Starlight.

Watch our film and meet the Flyers below.

In 2014, Wing Commander Phil Holdcroft’s daughter, Isla, was diagnosed with leukaemia at just 22 months old. Seven years later, Isla has now been given the all-clear and is a thriving eight-year-old.

To mark this milestone, Phil, Chris, Si and Sonny will be spending their Christmas rowing; two hours on, two hours off, day and night, in the Talisker Whisky Atlantic Challenge. With every gruelling stroke, they’ll be raising funds for Starlight to provide play for seriously ill children.

Starlight supported Isla and the Holdcrofts throughout her treatment and recovery. We use the power of play to make the experience of illness and treatment better for seriously ill children and their families.

The adventure begins on December 12th. Follow the team live and donate to make a difference to seriously ill children like Isla at
