On a Sunny February morning in Antigua world record breaker Jasmine Harrison from Thirsk took the last few strokes of one the world’s hardest rowing challenges when she crossed the finishing line of the Talisker Whisky Atlantic Challenge.
Having set off in early December it had taken her 70 days, 3 hours and 48 mins to cover the 3000 miles from La Gomera in the Canaries to Antigua in the Caribbean across the unpredictable Atlantic ocean with only her lucky mascot “Wilson” as company, on crossing the finishing line Jasmine became the youngest person ever to undertake this amazing solo feat beating a world record that had stood for 10 years.
Come along and hear how Jasmine overcame isolation, sleep deprivation and injury, to achieve this amazing journey, listen to her frightening tales of twice having her boat capsize, coming within a whisker of being run down by a 750ft tanker and being tracked by sharks hoping for a mid-Atlantic meal, listen to how she swam with the dolphins that followed her boat and the amazing wildlife that lives in our oceans.
Jasmines story and stunning photography will be an evening not to miss.
