PRESS RELEASE - SPIRIT OF MONTANARO CROSSES THE FINISH LINE AT 12.41 UTC
The Pytheas Club, made up of Adam Rackley and Jimmy Arnold crossed the finish line with a crossing time of 76 days, 23 hours and 49 minutes.
Adam found he was very efficient at catching Dorada and made a good feast and a refreshing change from the mundane day to day rations.
They had a chance meeting with Pete van Kets on board Nyamezela, had a swim and a chat mid ocean - as you do!
After having some minor power issues and having to hand pump their water for a while, and medical issues early on, Adam & Jimmy have pulled through these problems and succeeded in a very successful crossing.
Congratulations Pytheas Club!
