Limited Intelligence crossed the finish line at 13.40 UTC on Saturday 20th March 2010 to complete their Atlantic crossing in 75 days 0 hours and 10 minutes.

Their race and crossing was thrown into oblivion within the first week after Benjy Thomasson, one of crew got off the boat for personal reasons leaving just 3 - this also disqualified the crew from the official race. However, the three remaining oarsmen bravely fought on and battled the ocean to complete the crossing.

Throughout their remaining time at sea the 3 man crew of Limited Intelligence of Paul Williams, Andy Mallinson and Dominic Marsh had regular set backs. The tracking beacon has struggled in the ocean conditions, their water maker has failed at numerous times but perhaps the most bizarre circumstance was that of a marlin beak piercing the hull of the boat and splitting the water maker inlet pipe. This then required regular attention to bail out any water making its way into the cabin.

Having now completed the crossing and gone through endeavours they probably never imagine they guys will now start a well earned rest in Antigua with family and friends.
