Previous crossings

Built in 2016 for the TWAC that year. Rudder loss at approximately 1/3rd distance led to the rower being rescued. Billy No Mates was adrift for several months before being recovered and returned to Avon Marina (Formally Rossiters) and bought by NY2UKSolorow. The rudder and steering system was reengineered from scratch, along with significant updating and upgrading for its second and successful voyage across the North Atlantic in 2021 taking 119 days.
