Imagine getting in a rowboat and paddling down a lazy river on a warm afternoon. It sounds like a relaxing way to enjoy the outdoors without a care in the world.

How about rowing a boat 3,000 miles in the Atlantic Ocean from the tip of Africa to Antigua?

That’s the adventure of the “Foar Brothers,” a team that consists of three of the Hamilton brothers—Timothy, Thomas, and Trent, and their nephew, Ben Clark. The oldest brother, Troy, was scheduled to be part of the team but a back injury sidelined him, so Clark took his place.
