What an amazing performance! You have to give these guys credit for guts and fitness and you have to give their sponsor credit for recognizing a win win situation no matter how it turned out. From a press release on a commercial maritime website: "The oldest team to row across the Atlantic, sponsored by Chemring Marine, the world's leading marine distress signal company, took just 48 days to finish. The Corinthians team, Elliot Dale (54), Chris Walters (52), Brian Fletcher (58) and Tony Short (67), from Dorset and Devon, has a combined age of 231 years - 54 years more than the previous oldest victors. The Corinthians finished the 3,000-mile race from the Canaries to Barbados in 48 days, eight hours and three minutes and came in sixth place in their ocean rowing boat Spirit of Corinth. The team says, "Well we finally made it! At about 18.45 local time, on Sunday the twenty-first of January, we took our first steps on land for forty-eight days, thus completing the challenge of rowing across the Atlantic Ocean, and breaking our own target of fifty days. This has literally been one hell of a rollercoaster ride and so very hard. "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!"
