Having stood for 114 years, the oldest record in ocean-rowing history was finally broken in 2010, when the crew of the Artemis Investments – Leven Brown, Don Lennox (both UK), Ray Carroll (Ireland) and Livar Nysted (Faroe Islands) – rowed the Atlantic west to east from Battery Park, New York, USA, to St Mary’s, Scilly Isles, UK, in just 43 days 21 hr 26 min 48 sec. The four men rowed from 17 June to 31 July 2010, beating the previous record, set in 1896, by more than 11 days.
