Last week we had a guest taking up a little more room than our production floor is used to! 👀
We have an exciting update to share with you all. For those of you who aren’t familiar , let us introduce you to a true adventurer who is embarking on the 721 Challenge, Nick Hollis!
What is the 721 Challenge?
Nick is pushing the boundaries of human capability by taking on the 721 Challenge, which involves
Conquering the 7 highest summits in the world
Skiing to the North and South poles
and as if that wasn’t enough,
Completing the world’s toughest ocean row.
The World’s Toughest Row – An Epic Journey
The Talisker Whisky Atlantic Challenge is known as the world’s toughest rowing event. The grueling adventure spans over 3000 miles, and requires a relentless cycle of rowing for 2 hours and sleeping for 2 hours, around the clock.
Imagine rowing continuously for 24 hours a day! Rowers burn an astounding 5,000 calories per day, and on average, lose 12kg during the crossing. He’ll start from the Canary Islands and conclude in Antigua & Barbuda. 🌎
It’s an incredible test of physical and mental fortitude!
Where PressOn comes in
To ensure his boat is both visually stunning and durable, he approached us as his Large Format Printer of choice to wrap it with a top-notch material that will look 10/10 throughout his entire journey.
The livery was printed using Water based ink from our HP Latex printers. We had a limited amount of time so being able to print the livery and apply it straight away was important. PressOn love working with HP as they are equally invested in providing Sustainable Printing Solutions so this felt like the perfect fit!
We’re thrilled to announce that phase one of the boat wrap has been successfully completed. Nick has taken the boat back for further training, and in the coming weeks, he’ll be back to Chatham where we’ll finish the project to ensure his vessel is ready to conquer the mighty Atlantic.
Supporting Conservation with The World Land Trust
Nick is carrying out this remarkable challenge in aid of The World Land Trust, a conservation charity dedicated to protecting the world’s most biologically significant and threatened habitats acre by acre.
“The money that is given to the World Land Trust, in my estimation, has more effect on the wild world than almost anything I can think of.”– Sir David Attenborough
