5th March 2016   English Harbour, Antigua

Scottish solo rower, Duncan Brown has crossed the finish line of the Talisker Whisky Atlantic Challenge. He began the race rowing with his friend Andy who unfortunately, on the 1st February had to be transferred from their boat due to medical issues.   Duncan remained determined to continue the crossing as a solo rower and reached the finish line in 75 days, 14 hours and 46 minutes becoming the twenty-fifth participant to reach Antigua.

The last few days rowing were difficult. Duncan was pushed south while battling bad weather therefore needed assistance to get into English Harbour.  We admire the incredible fortitude he showed when enduring everything that nature threw at him.

Duncan took on this arduous challenge to raise money for Great Ormond Street Hospital.   Find out more about his challenge by clicking here

His first thoughts on reaching land, “ It feels like a hell of a relief to get here. It’s also very hot. Could really feel the temperature building up in the last sort of few hundred miles.  It’s pretty overwhelming.  All the attention here is phenomenal.  I don’t know this many people in day to day life back home”.

Originally from Aberdeen, Duncan is a personal trainer with a passion for endurance events.  Inspired by James Cracknell and Ben Fogle’s row across the Atlantic, Duncan decided to sign-up for The Talisker Whisky Atlantic Challenge.  And we are very happy and proud that he did.  Please join us in congratulating this courageous and tenacious young man.  Well-done Duncan.
