May 22, 2012 (Newswire.com) - Orbana Healthy Energy athlete Tommy Tippetts has successfully rowed the Atlantic Ocean unaided. Incorporating Orbana into a daily nutritional regime he crossed the Atlantic Ocean in 82 days 8 hours and 40 minutes.
After setting off from the Canary Islands on the 21st January, Tommy had to combat some rough spells of weather, flying fish attacks and a broken water purifier before arriving in Barbados almost three months later.
Talking about how he kept motivated throughout the row, Tommy said:
"I actually never once sat on the boat thinking "this or that would be nice to have right now" or missed any home comforts as it were. When you are in the position of being out in the middle of the ocean on your own, you don't have much choice as to what you can and can't have and so you just have to get on with it. I found my food to be great and Orbana provided a more than adequate alternative to straight water in terms of taste."
Tommy Tippetts was taking part in the grueling Woodvale Race and raising money in aid of Mind, a leading mental health charity. He's raised almost £15,000 so far.
"We were delighted to support Tommy as he undertook this grueling endurance challenge. Providing him with clean energy which optimizes health and performance was integral to his nutritional regime for such a feat of endurance. Completing this challenge having only taken up rowing a couple of years ago is an inspiration, and proves with the right preparation, determination and team around you, anything can be achieved." - Daymon Nicolson, CEO, Orbana Limited
