American team Latitude 35 (Jason Caldwell (33) and Thomas Magarov (30)), have reached the finish line of the Talisker Whisky Atlantic Challenge, known as the world’s toughest row. Latitude 35 set out from La Gomera to compete as a four, but two teammates, Nick Khan (28) and Greg Wood (35), made the difficult decision to leave the race after 12 days at sea. Overcoming all obstacles, Jason and Thomas embodied their boat’s name, ‘American Spirit’ to defy the odds and continue on as a pair to complete the crossing in 51 days, 8 hours and 32 minutes.

Skipper Jason comments on the race: “When Nick and Greg had to make the decision to leave it was pretty tough, but we knew we were always going to have to carry on. Arriving into Antigua, the reception has been amazing and I’d definitely take this on again. It’s an incredible way to challenge yourself and despite difficult days there were countless highs to outweigh the lows.”

Nick took the necessary decision to leave after suffering from chronic seasickness and was joined by Greg who decided to exit due to unforeseen personal issues. Jason, from San Francisco, and Thomas, from Philadelphia, continued towards Antigua as a two-man team.

Latitude 35 took on the arduous challenge to raise money for St. Jude’s Research Hospital.
