Rowing records

-

Seventy-two-year-old Graham Walters has broken three records by rowing across the Atlantic. His 3,000-mile journey began on the island of Gran Canaria, and he arrived on the Caribbean island of Antigua 13 weeks later, on 29 April. Walters is now the oldest person to row across the Atlantic – as well as any ocean – and is also the oldest person to cross the same ocean multiple times.
