US High School Teacher Rows Solo across Atlantic Ocean in Record Time

A high school science teacher from Cincinnati, Ohio, has rowed solo across the Atlantic, setting a record for a West-to-East crossing.

Bryce Carlson, 37 anni, arrived at St. Mary in the Scilly Isles, off England’s southwestern tip, late Saturday, 38 days, 6 hours and 49 mins after setting out from St. John’s, Newfoundland.

Mr. Carlson rowed more than 2,000 nautical miles (3,200 kilometers) in his 20-foot (6-meter) boat, Lucille. He said he had “a lot of luck along the way.”

The Ocean Rowing Society on Sunday listed Mr. Carlson’s time on its website as the fastest for a West-to-East unsupported solo row. The previous record was 53 days, 8 hours and 26 mins.

Carlson is also the 1st American to complete the feat, according to the society.
