After a brilliant start the crew of Sara G has been finding the going much tougher as they attempt to set a new record for rowing across the Atlantic. Seasickness and difficult winds have not helped. The English station Heart FM has a brilliant interview with Ian Rowe, in which he describes the daily challenge as "brutal". The three men who were rowing as he spoke were Aodhan Kelly, Simon Brown and the skipper Matt Craughwell.
