PRESS RELEASE - Pendovey Swift Crosses the Finish Line @ 10.13 UTC 21st March 2010

22 Mar 2010 13:20 GMT
The crew of Pendovey Swift, Mike Arnold and Simon Evans completed the Atlantic Ocean Rowing Race 2009 at 11:13 hours UTC on Sunday 21st March to complete the event in 75 days 20 hours and 17 minutes. Pendovey Swift became the 9th pair's crew to finish the race and were 12th overall.

There was cause for a double celebration as Simon also turned 39 yesterday - what a way to spend his birthday. Upon making land they were reunited with family and friends having spent over 2 months at sea.

For much of the race they were leading their fire fighting colleagues on board Spirit of MA and were looking to be the first fire fighters to cross the ocean but sadly Neil and Dean did end up beating them by just under 1 day. However, take nothing away from the fantastic result they have had in completing this race.

Congratulations Mike and Simon on an incredible feat.
