Beech Boys complete record breaking crossing

30 Mar 2010 12:37 BST

Norman and James Beech – The Beech Boys, completed the Atlantic Rowing Race at 17:59 hrs UTC on Saturday 27th March. They received a race time of 82 days 4 hours and 29 minutes and were placed 20th and 15th in the fleet and pair’s class respectively.

 

They recorded two records, becoming the first British father and son crew to row the Atlantic and James has now become the youngest male to have rowed across the Atlantic Ocean.

 

Having crossed the finish line the safety rib came across to them and escorted them into English Harbour. Also present to congratulate their finish were Will and Tom from Heritage Explorer.

 

As they came into land looking relatively clean – having changed into fresh Water Aid t-shirts, horns sounded and flags were waved. And as they approached their berth in the marina, they were finally reunited with Christine and Lydia.

 

Upon making land they enjoyed their first meal of burger, chips and salad before proceeding to customs and immigration control. A family meal followed before enjoying a full nights rest – mission accomplished.
