First Romanian team to row the Atlantic Ocean, ATLANTIC 4, set new world record for speed during the 2017 “Talisker Whisky Atlantic Challenge”, with a time of 38 days 14 hours and 32 minutes. The crew departed on December 14 from the Canary Islands and arrived in Antigua on January 21st. They have returned home on Sunday, January 28.
Andrei Roşu, the first Romanian to swim in the English Channel, returned well from the race he made with Marius Alexe, Vasile Oşean and Ionuț Olteanu off the Atlantic Ocean into a light raft.
Drawing the line, there were 5100 km in 38 days, spent in a space 3 times smaller than the smallest studio apartment anyone can imagine, facing storms and waves of over 10 meters high.
Courageous Andrei, Marius, Vasile and Ionut paddled close to exhaustion for a social cause: they want to raise 500,000 Lei to build up a socio-medical center at Adunaţii Copăceni, Romania, for children with rare diseases.
In a live transmission of "Obiectiv Romania!" show broadcasted by Radio Romania News, Andrei Roşu said that he and his crew had the chance to feel like a dot on the radar of the Universe and that they found answers to many of the existential questions, having gone through a physical, mental and spiritual transformation.
