Nite Maverick - Angus Collins
What Makes Angus a Nite Maverick?
In 2014 Angus and the Fast Row West team set out to break the Four Man record across the Indian Ocean. After 71 days at sea and being forced to change route, the team set a new speed record and became the youngest four-man team to row any ocean. In 2016, Angus skippered team Ocean Reunion and completed the Atlantic Crossing in a new race record in the Talisker Whisky Atlantic Challenge. In 2017, he went on to beat this record and set a new World Record with Team Latitude 35.
These records saw Angus make it into the Guinness Book of World Records for The Fastest Four Man team to row the Atlantic, The Youngest Four Man team to row any ocean and The Youngest Person to row three oceans.
Prior to ocean rowing, Angus trekked through the heart of the Papua New Guinea rainforest, raced Tuk-Tuks across the width of India and completed ultra-marathons.
Angus now trains teams and organises expeditions for individuals and teams from around the world and is also a motivational speaker inspiring people to push their physical and mental boundaries and show that with hard work and determination anything can be possible.
During 2022, Angus has been coaching and advising the US ocean rowing team Shut Up & Row, competing in the Talisker Whiskey Atlantic Challenge, the world’s toughest rowing race.
Using all his world record-setting knowledge and experience, Angus has been guiding them throughout their preparation and training to ensure they have the knowledge and strategy to meet their objective of becoming the first-ever American team to win this race.
The 3000-mile crossing in treacherous seas starts on December 12 2022. This challenge will take them more than 3000 Miles west from San Sebastian in La Gomera, Canary Islands, Spain, to Nelson’s Dockyard, English Harbour, Antigua & Barbuda.

As Worn By Angus
The Alpha is inspired by dive watch designs that started in the 1930s. Since then, there have been many developments, including an Italian naval instrument maker who created a watch with luminous material. This gave a Naval frogman a fighting chance at reading the dial in murky water or during night-time operations.
Our version of the dive watch is shock, sand and saltwater resistant. It has the brightest Tritium illumination available for easy underwater readability and is water resistant to 300 m (1000 ft). As with all our watches, it is powered by a Swiss movement and made with the finest components.
Not everyone wears their Alpha in the sea, but however you spend your time, your watch won’t let you down because it has already been proven through passion.
