Boomers: 70-Year Scottish Man Rows Solo 3,000 Miles Across Atlantic (Video)

Frank Rothwell, 70, from Oldham, Scotland set off from Canary Island La Gomera on December 12 and crossed the finish line in Antigua in the Caribbean on Saturday – reuniting with Judith, his wife of 50 years, with time to spare until Valentine’s Day.

He said crossing the finish line was a “completely euphoric moment” as he fundraised more than £648,000 for Alzheimer’s Research UK in tribute to his brother-in-law Roger, who died with Alzheimer’s aged 62 during his row.
