Latitude 35 for the Win

Latitude 35, a composite British-American crew, has set a new trans-Atlantic rowing record. The team outlasted 11 others to take this year’s Talisker Whiskey Atlantic Challenge, a 3,000-mile open-water race between the Canary Islands and Antigua, in 35 days, 14 hours, and three minutes. Impressively, the team—Americans Jason Caldwell and Matthew Brown and Angus Collins and Alex Simpson of the United Kingdom—managed to keep things drama-free during what’s known as “the world’s toughest row.” Said Simpson: “We put any differences aside.”
