Congratulations to British team Atlantic Castaways (Freddie Wright (21) and Jack Galsworthy (21)) have broken the record for the youngest pair to row across an ocean in the Talisker Whisky Atlantic Challenge. Atlantic Castaways finished tenth overall beating 16 other teams to the finish line.

Atlantic Castaways took on the arduous challenge to raise money for the Brain Research Trust and have raised close to £40,000 at the time of arrival. It took the team 47 days 14 hours and 46 minutes.

Skipper Freddie comments on the race “We’ve had such an amazing time, we’re proud of the record but it wasn’t what we set out to do, it’s really just a bonus on top of what has been an awesome experience. We would definitely do this again!”

Freddie and Jack previously cycled Home2Rome together and following an inspirational talk in 2010 about the Talisker Atlantic Challenge, felt compelled to undertake another adventure alongside their university studies. Freddie is currently reading mechanical engineering at Bristol University and Jack is an aspiring medic studying bio-medical sciences at Kings College London.
