Spirit of MA crosses the finish line at 1640hrs UTC on the 20th March 2010

Neil Gyllenship & Dean Jagger of Team Heatwave have made a crossing time of 75 days, 3 hours and 10 minutes.

Neil & Dean are both fire-fighters from Manchester Airport and after a healthy battle against Simon & Mike onboard Pendovey Swift, the Welsh fire-fighters they have piped them to the post.

Neil & Dean have had very positive & high spirits throughout their journey which has made them enjoy their row to the maximum.

They have talked of dolphins pods of up to 40 dolphins, a resident Mai-Mahi Dorada and various other wildlife escorting them. They have also experienced equipment issues, as with all the boats and kept a handle on it all by working together as a focused team and realising their dream of getting to Antigua.

Well Done Team Heatwave!
