We are Janik and Danny, two old school friends from Germany who have decided to take part in the Talisker Whisky Atlantic Challenge 2023. The TWAC, also known as the world’s toughest rowing race, will take us 3000 miles across the Atlantic Ocean. Our rowing boat is 100% human-powered, unsupported and self-sufficient.
Why should you sponsor?
Once we have covered our race cost with the help of corporate sponsorships, we will start a public fundraiser. All money raised from the fundraiser, the sale of our boat after the race and further sponsorships will go towards our chosen charities. We are aiming to raise 150.000 EUR for charity.
We are the team NOT TODAY! We are competing in the pairs class of the Talisker Whisky Atlantic Challenge 2023, aiming to row 4800 kilometres across the Atlantic. The team “ Not Today Row“ consists of Janik Prottung and Danny Schleicher.
In 2012, we graduated from the same high school in Heidelberg, Germany. Janik went on to study physics, Danny became an electronics technician. In 2019, Danny and Janik met again in Bali. They talked about dreams and plans for the future. Surprisingly, Janik was the first person who didn’t flinch when Danny told him about his idea to row the Atlantic. That day, a crazy idea was born.
When the 2020 race started, Janik sent Danny a message asking if the idea of rowing an ocean together was still alive. By January 2021 team NOT TODAY was signed up for the Talisker Whisky Atlantic Challenge 2023.
We are often asked about the name of our team. Why “NOT TODAY”? The answer lies in the question. Why not today? Today’s the day to pursue your dreams.
