Maclean Brothers Set Rowing World Records in the Atlantic

Jamie, Ewan and Lachlan MacLean are the first three brothers to row any ocean, and the youngest trio and the fastest trio to ever row the Atlantic.

They set off from La Gomera, in the Canary Islands on 12 December and completed the 3,000-mile trip to Antigua in just 35 days! The fastest a trio had ever rowed the Atlantic Ocean before was 41 days.

The Maclean brothers Jamie and Lachlan, students at the Glasgow University and Glasgow School of Art respectively, convinced their brother Ewan, a design engineer for Dyson in Bristol, to take a sabbatical from work to make this world record attempt.

“It definitely tested our relationship, but it was remarkable how we were able to lift each other up as we struggled. It’s brought us closer together, although I am looking forward to getting to see and talk to some different people.”
