Another aspiring adventurer is about to make some Irish History. Gavan Hennigan is about to finish one of his most enduring races of all time.


An ocean rower and extreme diver amongst other professional athletic endeavors, Gavan is currently coming in FIRST in his category. The Challenge is Rowing The Atlantic Solo as part of The Talisker Whisky Challenge Race which started in December 2016.

Gavan hails from a seaside town/city of Galway Ireland, a place well positioned to work on his toughest and most dangerous career. His background is deep-sea diving but now he is a full time Adventurer & Extreme Athlete.


There are still a lot of long hard rows before he arrives at the finish line, but he is momentarily a favorite to come in 3rd position overall with hopefully first place in the Solo category. Most of the competitors are in a team, rowing alternatively.

Some spectacular goals he has achieved.


  • March 2015 – Completed Likeys 6633 – 350 Mile Artic Winter Ultra Marathon
  • May 2015 – Climbed 6,856 Ama Dablam, 8 week expedition
  • January 2016 – 3rd Place – Art O’Neil Challenge Dublin Ireland
  • July 2016 – 50 mile Western Way
  • July 2016 – Completed Ironman Galway Ireland

We wish him all the best over the next 24hrs, and is a true inspiration, not only as an extreme athlete but we celebrate his environmental and charitable endeavors.

  N.B > At time of going to press Gavan was only 15 NM ahead of the closing 4th positioned competitor…. (With approx..125 NM to go!!!!!!
