Team led by ex-RN officer set to break Transatlantic rowing record

Team Hallin, led by ex-Minewarfare & Clearance Diving Officer (MCDO) David Hosking MBE and sponsored by his old MCDO course-mate John Giddens (Founder & Chief Executive of Hallin Marine), is only a couple of days away from reaching Barbados and looks set to break the world record for rowing across the Atlantic. Competition with rival team Sara G remains fierce, as can be seen on the Ocean Rowing Society's website here, but both boats are on track to beat the record set by La Mondiale in 2007/8. The question is, which will achieve the fastest corrected time and thereby reign supreme?
