17th February 2016 – English Harbour, Antigua

British man, Callum Gathercole (20), has crossed the finish line of the Talisker Whisky Atlantic Challenge, breaking the record for the youngest solo rower to cross an ocean and finishing eighteenth overall in this race.

Callum took on the arduous challenge to raise money for the Princess Alice Hospice in memory of his father and has raised over £85,000 so far.

It took Callum 58 days, 15 hours and 15 mins to cross the Atlantic. And how does it feel to be in Antigua? “Amazing,  there were definitely some difficult days rowing where you knew you had to keep going in tough conditions if you wanted to continue making progress, but it was also a brilliant challenge that I thoroughly enjoyed taking on.”

Callum, originally from Surrey, is now a student of Aerospace Engineering at the University of Bristol. He has been rowing since the young age of nine and has taken part in prestigious events including the Henley Royal Regatta. An extremely driven and competitive young man, Callum has also represented England in the European and World Internationals in 2012 and 2013.
