A team of rowers from the Isles of Scilly launch their transatlantic count down today, Tuesday 5 February from the Penlee RNLI lifeboat station. The four-man team are aiming to beat the record for crossing the Atlantic from New York to the Bishop Rock Lighthouse.
Five people are training for the row, though only four will make the journey, which starts in June; Chris Jenkins and Wayne Davey who are RNLI crew volunteers on the St Mary’s and Penlee lifeboats respectively, Paul Osbourne, Tim Garratt and Joby Newton. The route means they will be ‘rowing for home’, and their challenge is to beat the existing record of 55 days and 13 hours.
