British resident Jasmine Harrison, 21, has become the youngest woman in the world to cross the Atlantic Ocean in a rowing boat. This was announced on Sunday, February 21, according to The Guardian.
The girl started on the island of Homer (Spain) in December and 70 days later moored on the Caribbean island of Antigua.
Jasmine is a professional swimmer who works as an instructor. Her physical training is excellent, but the trip still did not go without incidents. Yes, the boat was once overturned by a wave, and then the girl injured her shoulder and the last days of the voyage she had to deal with severe pain. Her first words when she stepped on the ground were, “Food, please let me eat.”
Harrison called the voyage itself, which can not be compared with anything, and especially noted the moment of departure from civilization.
“There is nothing like being isolated – from social networks, bad news, from everything in the world,” said the British woman.
Jasmine entered the Guinness Book of Records as the youngest woman to cross the Atlantic in a rowing boat.
Before Harrison, the youngest woman to cross the Atlantic alone in a rowing boat was 22-year-old American Katie Spotz, who covered the route between January 3 and March 14, 2010. And the youngest single participant in the race, who overcame the entire route, was an 18-year-old British-Italian-Austrian student Lucas Heitzmann, in 2019 he passed the road in 59 days.
