Brain Waves undertook an attempt to row the Atlantic East to West  from  Lanzarote to Antigua as a team of Four, but on Jan 19, 2020 due to damage to the boat, the crew were forced to ask for pick up and were towed to Cape Verde. After the repair they restarted the row as a Trio and are now on their way to Antigua.

For Billy and Alex it is planned to be the first part of the challenge to row two oceans in one year: picking up 2 new crew members – John Haskell and Rachel Hearn – they intend to take on the Indian Ocean, a non-stop crossing from Australia to mainland Africa.
