San Diego, California – Polyurethane protective coatings specialist Rhino Linings is sponsoring Team 32° North in the Talisker Whisky Atlantic Challenge.
The team consists of two brothers, John and Kurt Schwartz, who will be rowing from the Canary Islands to Antigua in a two-man rowing boat in aid of The Samfund, a charity that supports young people with cancer.
“We are proud to sponsor these young men in this very difficult race, and we are especially proud to assist them in bringing awareness to The Samfund,” said Pierre Gagnon, president and chief executive of Rhino Linings. “The will and determination to compete in the ‘world’s toughest row’ and their support of those battling cancer reflects the values that Rhino Linings holds in highest regard.”
The teams set off from the Canary Islands on 14 December, and should arrive in Antigua two months later. More details can be found at www.row32north.com
