A British team of four rowers has been crowned the winner of this year’s Talisker Whisky Atlantic Challenge after travelling 3,000 miles across the Atlantic Ocean in 32 days, 12 hour and 35 minutes.

Fortitude IV, which was made up of teammates Ollie Palmer, Tom Foley, Hugh Gillum and Max Breet, rowed from La Gomera in the Canary Islands to English Harbour, Antigua, where they crossed the finish line on 13 January.

The remaining teams are expected to cross the finish line soon, however some solo boats could be set to spend up to eight weeks more at sea.
