As an RAF Battlefield Helicopter pilot, a regular marathon and Ironman triathlon competitor, and an expert at skiing, sailing, fencing and swimming, Chris Carrington-Smith, one of the Atlantic Flyer’s Flight Lieutenant, is used to working in arduous conditions against unfavourable odds.
Thanks to his military experience, Chris is no stranger to pushing the physical limits of the human body, fighting chronic fatigue or undergoing extreme tests of endurance. These skills will serve him well whilst he’s rowing 3,000 miles across the Atlantic this December. He’s constantly inspired by the spirit and drive of those he has competed alongside during his endurance challenges and served with throughout his military career.
Chris is not only excited for the physical and mental challenge and growth him and the team will endure throughout the Talisker Whisky Atlantic Challenge, but also the opportunity to support Starlight. This adventure will mark the fantastic and life-changing hurdle for the Holdcroft family and Chris is massively honoured to be part of this journey.
