EVENT UPDATE: This event had to be re-scheduled due to Covid-19. We apologise for any confusion caused with the date changes and any notification emails received. This event will still be taking place but we are yet to confirm a date/time. We have pencilled in the 12th of December 2020 as this marks the one year anniversary of when the Broar Brothers embarked on their voyage.
We thank you for your patience and look forward to sharing this event with you in due course.
The trio of former pupils set three world-records rowing 3,000 nautical miles across the toughest seas.
Lachlan, Ewan and Jamie, known as the Broar Brothers (a combination of the words 'brother' and 'oar') touched land in Antigua on 9th January 2020, becoming the first three brothers to row any ocean. At age 23, 25 and 27, they also became the youngest trio to row the Atlantic. Setting off on 13th December, 35 days, 9 hours and 9 minutes on, they now hold the record as the fastest trio also, beating the previous record set by almost a week.
Sadly the Whisky & Oysters evening with BROAR & ‘whisky man’ Charles Maclean has been postponed. In the meantime, we are putting together an online broadcast, reflecting the sign of the times. The brothers are welcoming your questions for them to answer - from Antigua (Lachlan), England (Euan) and Scotland (Jamie). These questions can include anything from how they managed food preparation to how the isolation of the ocean with just the company of siblings prepared them for the current pandemic.
By competing in the Talisker Atlantic Challenge, they hope to raise £250,000 for Scottish-based charity Children First, and Feedback Madagascar. With over 80% of this target raised, they are on their final fundraising leg. Their website and sponsorship page can be visited here: https://www.broar.co.uk/
All three brothers attended Edinburgh Steiner Lower School.
