First ever four-man crew break five world records in epic row across Arctic Ocean and raise money for homeless young people in Devon 

On Saturday 22nd July, the first ever four-man crew completed a freezing 15-day row across the Arctic Ocean from Tromsø in Norway, 550 nautical miles to Svalbard in the high North.    

The team was led by Plymouth-based Royal Marine, Matt Mason, Skipper of the first team to row from New York to London and included MOD Policeman Matt Inglesby, and Somerset-based businessmen Mark Sealey and Colin Hiscock.  

The four-man crew have broken five world records in their row across the Arctic Ocean, done to raise funds for young, homeless people in Exeter through the work of YMCA Exeter.
