Dreamboats Ben Towill and Chef Charlie Layton at Charleston Wine + Food
Meet the Dreamboats! The British-born, Charleston-based duo of Restaurateur Ben Towill and Chef Charlie Layton of Basic Projects are preparing to row across the Atlantic Ocean in the 2022 Talisker Whisky Atlantic Challenge. They were inspired to take on this extraordinary feat of athletic and mental endurance when they were in the depths of the most challenging days of running a restaurant during the Covid pandemic. Liza Hamm interviews them about their decision, the preparation, and the upcoming journey that will take them across 3,000 nautical miles in very close quarters. The pair will be raising funds for The Green Heart Project and 2041 Foundation.
