On 20 December 2015, The Yorkshire Rows set off on a herculean challenge to row 3000 nautical miles across the Atlantic ocean.  It is no surprise that more people have been into space or climbed Everest than have rowed the Atlantic. It takes a certain kind of person to keep going when faced with blisters, salt rash, and sleep deprivation. That is why this race is one of the toughest races on earth.  Come and listen to 2 of the 4 women who made up the Yorkshire Rows team tell their story of how they achieved their dream and successfully arrived in Antigua in 67 days picking up a world record, the oldest women to row any ocean.
