On Monday evening, U.S. time, the last scull in the 2016-17 Talisker Whisky Atlantic Challenge arrived at English Harbor, Antigua. Daryl Farmer in Rower’s Ark (UK), completed his transatlantic row with a total time of 96 days, 13 hours, 10 minutes and 5 seconds. Farmer was raising funds for two charities, East Sussex Wildlife Rescue & Ambulance Service and Earthrace Conservation. Farmer’s dogged determination to complete the race, long after the other boats had finished, reflects the best spirit of the Atlantic Challenge and its participants. Congratulations!
