Ocean Summit completes Atlantic crossing

30 Mar 2010 12:36 BST

Stuart Burbridge in his boat Ocean Summit has completed the Atlantic Rowing Race having crossed the finish line at 16:17 hours UTC on Saturday 27th March 2009. The official race time was 82 days 2 hours and 47 minutes.

 

Stuart and Rob had, for much of the race been sitting towards the front end of the fleet, at points occupying a top 10 position and would have harbored the opportunity to race as a pair until the very end. Sadly however Rob took the tough decision to get of the boat when inside the last 500nm.

 

Rob is a keen mountaineer and has an expedition to summit Mount Everest this spring. Sadly, due to the initial delay and continued adverse weather experienced throughout the race Rob ran out of time and was escorted of Ocean Summit by the support yacht Ocean Planet 2 weeks ago. This decision meant that Ocean Summit officially retired from the race.

 

Following this however, Stuart took the very brave decision to continue on to the finish line alone, and in doing so completed an ocean crossing.

 

Many congratulations Stuart for your determination and effort from all at the Woodvale Challenge team.
