Positions The Ocean Rowing Society (the official adjudicator of Ocean Rowing Records for Guinness World Records) has now set up a comparitive chart showing the positions of Britannia III, Hallin Marine and Sara G (Britannia IIIs competition) against the current world record holders La Mondiale.
The Ocean Rowing Society International said La Mondiale has already broken a 24-hour distance record of 117 miles and became the first ocean rowing boat to travel more than 100 miles per day for nine consecutive days.
Last year he and friend Mick Perrines raised pounds 76,000 by rowing across the Atlantic, smashing European and British records and winning the 2004 Ocean Rowing Society Atlantic Rowing Regatta.
They have not only broken the St John's-Bishop's Rock record by 15 days but the Ocean Rowing Society has also said that, once they arrive in to Falmouth, they will become the first crew to row the Atlantic from Canada to both mainland UK and Europe.
During those valiant attempts five rowers lost their lives, according to the Ocean Rowing Society.
Kenneth Crutchlow, of the Ocean Rowing Society, said the break-up of the Pink Lady, which was 33ft long and just 5ft wide, "brings into question the real strength of the boat".
Their names are recorded on a limestone memorial erected by the Ocean Rowing Society on cliffs overlooking the Atlantic at Kilkee in County Clare, Ireland.
