Video: Rowing Across The Atlantic Ocean

This past January adventurer Alastair Humphreys joined a team of ocean rowers that included Marin Medak, Simon Osborne and Stephen Bowens who set out to cross the Atlantic under their own power. The men covered the 4700km (2920 mile) distance between the Canary Islands and Barbados in just 45 days and along the way they had the adventure of a lifetime. Last week Alastair released a video that documented that journey which was as much philosophical and spiritual as it was physical. The beautiful video perfectly captures the simplicity of rowing day after day, mile after mile, across a seemingly endless ocean. It is a challenge that isn’t for everyone but watching this may inspire you to plan your own adventures, aquatic or otherwise.
