Holiday makers booking up Tenerife villas next month will have the chance to wish a group of female athletes well as they attempt a world record.
Five British women and an American skipper are hoping to become the quickest team to row unaided along a trans-Atlantic route.
Canaries News reports that the ladies will begin their goal by departing from the Canary Island La Gomera, which is just a short journey across the sea from Tenerife.
Row For Freedom will be conducted to help the efforts of ECPAT UK and will see the group become the first team of six women to undertake such a trek.
In total, 3,000 miles are set to be travelled between the Canary Islands and Barbados, which is coincidentally the same route which Christopher Columbus sailed during his discovery of America in the 1600s.
Julia Immonen, one of Row For Freedom's participants, commented: "We are all incredibly driven to secure this world record whilst raising funds and awareness of the issue of child slavery across the world."
Recently, a Carhiremarket.com study suggested that Tenerife is the most popular destination for people looking for a relaxing getaway either in December or January.
