English Harbour, Antigua

American team, The Cranial Quest (George Pagano and Caitlin Miller), have crossed the finish line of the Talisker Whisky Atlantic Challenge, known as the world’s toughest row. They are the only male and female team in this year’s race, and the youngest ever US team to cross the Atlantic in this race and finished seventeenth overall.

The Cranial Quest took on the arduous challenge to raise money for The ALS Association in memory of George’s grandfather. It took the team 58 days, 5 hours, and 6 minutes

Skipper Caitlin comments on the race:  It was more difficult than we imagined. I think the lowest point was definitely when the storm drove us backwards, but we also had numerous high points during the row and are both very happy now to be reunited with our friends and family in Antigua.”

Georgie is originally from Philadelphia and Caitlin, Southwest Minnesota, and they met at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln on the rowing team. This is where Caitlin discovered her love of rowing, but George had rowed throughout his high-school years too. With the charity at the heart of their motivation and a strong friendship formed during their University days, Caitlin and George decided to take their rowing boat from the river to the sea.

Their accomplishment is amazing, and is a testament to teamwork.  Please congratulate, both Caitlin and George by clicking here.
