7th January 2017
Gavan Hennigan Gavan Hennigan

#Rowing: Irish oarsman Gavan Hennigan has crossed halfway on his row across the Atlantic Ocean. The Galway man has had a tough 36 hours, with northerly winds pushing him off his preferred course, but the winds are switching to a more easterly direction and he has already begun to up his rate of nautical miles per day. Hennigan has been holding third place in a race with 12 boats, just four of them solo craft. He reached the halfway mark going into the 25th day of the Talisker Whisky Atlantic Challenge, which runs from La Gomera in the Canary Islands to Antigua.
