Four British women have set a new record for the fastest crossing from San Francisco to Hawaii by an all-female rowing crew.
The Ocean Sheroes completed the 2,800-mile crossing in 35 days, 14 hours and 32 minutes – becoming in the process the first all-British foursome to complete the Great Pacific Race.
The team comprises Bella Collins from Falmouth, Purusha Gordon from Luckington in Wiltshire, Mary Sutherland from Portsmouth, and Lily Lower of Burnham-on-Crouch, Essex.
Ms Sutherland said:
Only 22 teams have ever completed the Great Pacific race, which began in 2014.
The crew beat the previous record by an all-female crew, which stood at 50 days, eight hours and 14 minutes, by two full weeks.
