Harrison’s journey across the Atlantic by rowing boat ended on February 20 in the islands of Antigua and Barbuda after 70 days, 3 hours and 48 minutes from Spain.

According to CNN, with this achievement, the 21-year-old girl from the UK set a new world record, becoming the youngest woman to sail across the Atlantic. The previous record belonged to a 22-year-old girl from the US, set in 2010.

Harrison’s journey almost ended in tragedy on the 68th day when the boat capsized, injuring her elbow, according to the BBC. Despite this, Harrison was lucky to recover and continued his journey.

Writing on Twitter after landing, Harrison said she nearly collided with a cargo ship, twice her boat capsized but luckily escaped death. Her staples during the journey are peanut butter and cocoa butter.

To maintain movement speed and endurance for a journey of 4,828km, Harrison slept for 2 hours and then rowed for 2 hours, rotating like that until he reached the finish line.

The trip gave Harrison both good and bad experiences, but for the most part it was positive.

“You are disconnected from the world, the social media, the negative news and so on,” said Harrison. The only thing that connects her to the rest of humanity is the satellite phone that calls her mother every day.

In addition to setting a new record, Harrison also raised £ 10,000 to charity through the trip. “Hopefully my journey can inspire young people that they can do a lot on their own,” said Harrison.
