Brighter Futures rower completes Atlantic Challenge

Evelyn Williams 160225Trans-Atlantic solo rower Evelyn Williams has completed his epic adventure - raising money for the Brighter Futures Radiotherapy Appeal.

Competing in the Talisker Whisky Atlantic Challenge - 'The world's toughest row' - he crossed from the Canary Islands to Antigua in 66 days 13 hours and 55 minutes.

It was a dramatic night-time finish, as he battled against strong winds and currents as he approached land.

His approach to the finish in Freeman's Bay was described as the hardest seen so far in the race.

It's a fantastic achievement for the first-time oarsman.
