#Rowing: The Atlantic rowing race in which Irishman Gavan Hennigan is doing remarkably well has produced a new world record. The American four Latitude 35 crossed the line first in the Talisker Whisky Atlantic Challenge, winning the race in 35 days 14 hours and three minutes. This is the fastest row across the Atlantic from La Gomera in the Canaries to Antigua in the West Indies. The crew was led by American Jason Caldwell, who teamed up with Matt Brown, also from the US, and Angus Collins and Alex Simpson from Britain.
Another four, Row for James, is set to complete the race this weekend. Hennigan lies third of the 12 boats, holding a steady lead over the bulk of the field.
