60-year-old pharmacy worker becomes 1st deaf person to row across Atlantic Ocean

BBC
A 60-year-old pharmacy worker has become the first deaf person on record to row an ocean by finishing a 3,000-mile journey across the Atlantic. Mo O'Brien and her fellow crew members, including her daughter, landed on the Caribbean island of Antigua 49 days after setting out from the Canary Island of La Gomera in December.

Their arrival late yesterday local time makes them the fastest female trio to complete the challenge. The Ocean Rowing Society, which is responsible for monitoring ocean rowing records, confirmed the world first. Ms O'Brien, rowed almost 3,000 miles (4,800km) of Atlantic Ocean with her daughter Bird Watts, and their friend Claire Allinson.
