World record in the Pacific Ocean

12. July 2023

Kiwi Fondue won the World's Toughest Row with an incredible lead of 224 kilometers over the second placed team. But this was not enough for the Swiss-New Zealand team! After more than 1.5 million strokes, the world record was also broken. Never before had a rowing boat gone faster from the US mainland to Hawaii.

BGPartner is excited and congratulates sincerely the brothers Alexander and Lorenz Gammeter, Alex Brooker and Rich Henderson on this breathtaking achievement. We are not only an incredibly proud partner, but we have also enjoyed the last 29 days cheering along with you.

What is the recipe for this success? What are the parallels to negotiations? Find out in another video interview between Alexander Gammeter and our partner Dr. Alain P. Röthlisberger in October 2023. And in case you missed the first part: Click here for the video. 

Besides the impressive athletic and mental performance of the rowers, it is remarkable that the Kiwi Fondue Team will donate USD 60,000 to help rebuild coral reefs. The funds will go to the charity Coral Vita. On behalf of the whole team, Alexander thanks BGPartner for their support. There are these partners, who make such a project possible in the first place.
