Brothers become fastest trio to row the Atlantic

Three brothers from Scotland have set three world records after rowing the Atlantic Ocean in just 35 days, reports BBC.

Jamie, Ewan and Lachlan MacLean are the first three brothers to row any ocean, and the youngest trio and the fastest trio to ever row the Atlantic. They set off from La Gomera, in the Canary Islands on 12 December and have now completed the 3,000-mile trip to Antigua. Previously, the fastest a trio had ever rowed the Atlantic Ocean was 41 days.

The MacLean brothers, known as Broar, overcame seasickness, battery issues, storms, dehydration and exhaustion to reach Antigua in record time.
