UAE Rowing Team Crosses the Atlantic Ocean in 42 Days

UAE rowing team, the Arabian Ocean Rowing Team (AORT), succeeded in crossing the Atlantic Ocean and arriving on land unassisted.

AORT made it 5,000km across the Atlantic Ocean in a time period of 42 Days, 7 hours and 35 minutes.

Beginning their journey in December, the team is made of James Raley, Rai Tamagnini and Toby Gregory who rowed in an 8-metre-long boat from La Gomera, off the coast of Africa, to English Harbour in Antigua, facing 40-foot waves and extended sleep deprivation, rowing two hours on, two hours off.

The AORT aims to raise awareness about special causes such as environmental sustainability.
