Amazing. Congratulations to Jasmine Harrison.

21, and the youngest woman to row the Atlantic. She phoned her mum everyday. Might have something in my eye.

Finally, a real woman can be celebrated! Although I expect her achievement will somehow be considered transphobic.

Amazing! I’m in awe.

It’s a pretty fine achievement and that’s some understatement. I know people who have done it and how hard it is but to do it alone at 21 is unbelievable. I hope the Antiguans roared her in!

MadamBatty Sun 21-Feb-21 12:02:45

I know she’s 21 & an adult but her mum must have been worried sick about her. Well done

Fantastic achievement.
I wonder about the logistics in so doing. I'd love to know the hows of it.
Sleep, eating, loo, showers, storms etc.
Hopefully she will write a book.

I’ll read that book when is written!

Cuntysnark Sun 21-Feb-21 12:10:44

I can safely assure that you, Lady, that no showering will have occurred and her loo would have been a good old bucket. Clearly marked so as not to be confused with other buckets.

smileThanks Cuntysnark

Such an achievement! I have a bad back atm and can barely cross my legs, let alone the Atlantic. Well done, Jasmine Harrison.
