The team of four men – Jason Caldwell, Tom Magarov, Nicholas Khan and Greg Wood come from vastly varied backgrounds and different parts of North America.
The boat, 9metres long, was carefully designed and produced using the high quality digital printing equipment and laminating plant Revolution are known for. Over a timescale of three days the Latitude 35 boat was completed in-house by the highly skilled fitting team and delivered to the team ahead of the race beginning 15th December.
Latitude 35 has dedicated their row to two charities and hope to raise as much money as possible for them. The first is the St. Jude’s Research Hospital and the second is ‘Philabundance‘, a food organisation that feeds the hungry in the greater Philadelphia area. Tom brought St. Jude’s as an option, and after a heartfelt plea to the group on the real change that could be brought to sick children, it was a clear choice.
Philabundance was brought up as a consideration by Nick. Tom, Jason, and Nick all met in Philadelphia while rowing, so it felt like a natural choice to give back to the city that brought them together.
