The first all-male pair to row from continental Europe across the Atlantic east to west non-stop are John Wilson and Ricky Reina (both UK), who rowed 3,150 nautical miles (5,833 km; 3,624 miles) from Cadiz in Spain to Antigua between 27 November 2018 and 23 February 2019. They rowed as team "Atlantic Avengers" on board Sic Parvis Magna and completed the route in 88 days 9 hours 22 minutes at an average speed of 1.485 knots (1.708 mph; 2.750 km/h) – also a record for this route.
The pair followed the route of the second voyage of Christopher Columbus from Cadiz to Antigua. Together, Wilson and Reina are the oldest team to row this route – an average age of 52 years 228 days – and Wilson, at 58 years 27 days old at the start – is the oldest individual.
Their boat takes its name from the Latin motto of the explorer Sir Francis Drake (1540–1596) and means "Greatness comes from small things"
