Bloody Well Done Guys … AWESOME EFFORT!

A MASSIVE congratulations to the GigRowers: Chris Walters, Elliot Dale, Tony Short & Brian Fletcher who have just rowed across the Atlantic and arrived in Barbados.

An outstanding effort and utterly inspirational achievement.

They finished in 48 Days, 8 Hours, and 3 Minutes.

Here is their latest blog:

”Well we finally made it! At about 18.45 local time, on Sunday the 21st of January, we took our first steps on land for 48 days, thus completing the challenge of rowing across the Atlantic ocean, and breaking our own target of 50 days. It is so difficult to put into words how we are all feeling at this precise moment and I really don’t think it will sink in for quite a while, but amidst all the conflicting emotions the feeling of gratitude stands out. We are so grateful to every single person who has helped us to achieve this feat, and to all the supporters around the world who have kept us going with regular messages of encouragement and support – THANK YOU ALL! The plan is to publish a more detailed account of our journey on the website soon, so keep coming back to the site, and if you can afford any donations to our charities – Shelterbox & the British Heart Foundation – please click the donate button above. We look forward to seeing you all very soon. The Corinthians. ”
