Chubb sponsors 2023 World's Toughest Row team



About the journey

In December 2023, Team Marduk will set off rowing from the small fishing port of San Sebastián in La Gomera, Canary Islands, and they won’t stop until they reach Nelson’s Dockyard, English Harbour, Antigua & Barbuda, a distance of 3,000 miles (4,800 kilometres)

Chubb is sponsoring the four-man team (Alex Jackson of Chubb Global Markets in London and insurance professionals Adam Carrier and George Dagnall along with Jack Chapman) as they prepare for this non-stop, unassisted row across the Atlantic Ocean along with up to approximately 30 other teams competing from all over the world.

By the time Team Marduk rows its first stroke of the race it will have spent two years preparing physically and mentally for the rigors of the challenge, and Chubb will be there to support them every step of the way.


Alex, George, Adam and Jack - will embark on a challenge of a lifetime. Team Marduk will be rowing 2 hours on and 2 hours off in rotation, in support of Head Up and Bowel Cancer UK. All funds raised will be split equally between the two charities.

Bowel Cancer UK is the country’s leading bowel-cancer charity. Its vision is a future where nobody dies of the disease. Team Marduk is committed to helping Bowel Cancer UK raise funds for education, research and early diagnosis.

Head Up is a new UK charity set up by four veterans, intending to promote mental health awareness for UK Armed Forces, and help forces personnel build a positive mindset and improve their mental resilience.
