Three brothers from Scotland have set a trifecta of world records after rowing across the Atlantic Ocean in just over a month.

According to BBC News, Jamie, Ewan and Lachlan MacLean are the first three brothers to row any ocean, and the youngest trio and the fastest trio to ever row the Atlantic.

The brothers, collectively known as Broar, took just 35 days and change to row from La Gomera in the Canary Islands to Antigua in the Caribbean — besting the previous record time for a trio by some six days.

They also placed third overall in the Talisker Whisky Atlantic Challenge, in which Irish duo the Salty Pair are hoping to have made their mark this time next year.
