#Rowing: Gavan Hennigan has had an excellent start to the Talisker Whisky Atlantic Challenge. The Galway oarsman, rowing as Soulo Gav, is running fifth of the 12 boats and is leading the three solo boats. “It's been a hard few days adjusting to ocean life but getting easier,” he said in a tweet today.

 Hennigan and the other rowers left La Gomera in the Canary Islands on Wednesday. He had rowed 200 kilometres (108 nautical miles) by 5pm Irish time on Friday.
