Back on land !


Louis Margot took 76 days and covered more than 6500 km to cross the Atlantic Ocean by rowing from the Canary Islands. Departing on December 13th from Gran Canaria, he arrived on the morning of February 28th, 2024, in Fort-de-France, Martinique.

Numerous challenges encountered

This crossing was not without its challenges for the man from Vaud. Indeed, around the holiday season, the ocean threw challenges his way with several episodes of powerful waves. These conditions quickly began to take a mental toll on Louis, as the constant tossing and turning greatly disrupted his sleep. It was at this point that the first doubts about the purpose of his endeavor began to surface. In a video posted on social media, he described starting to feel the full weight of his adventure and the solitude.

Despite everything, he brilliantly managed to overcome his challenges, notably thanks to the support of his loved ones with whom he maintained regular communication throughout the crossing.

A collective success

This success is not just a personal achievement, but that of a team constantly supporting the individual from Morges. The underlying message that Human Impulse wants to convey is that one should believe in their dreams and not give up, even in the hardest moments, like those experienced and yet to be experienced by Louis throughout his adventure.

Thank you

We would like to thank everyone who has followed and supported this stage, whether closely or from afar. The support for “Human Impulse” has continued to grow and has provided us with crucial visibility for this project.

And now ?

After that, it will be time to head towards Central America, but the route has not yet been defined.
