A Sussex man who has been at sea for over 3 months on his own rowing single-handedly across the Atlantic Ocean is expected to finish his 3000-mile journey around Monday 20th March.
Daryl Farmer from Forest Row in East Sussex, set off from La Gomera on the 14th December 2016 as part of the Talisker Whisky Atlantic Challenge. With no engine and no sails Daryl has had to row every inch of the journey in his Pure Class traditional style ocean rowing boat. It is estimated that he has rowed over 1.5 million oar strokes so far whilst rowing up to 18 hours a day. More people have been into space and successfully climbed Everest than rowed across the Atlantic.
