Atlantic 4, the first ever ocean rowing  team from Romania and namely Andrei Rosu, Vasile Osean, Marius Alexe & Ionut Olteanu competed in the Talisker Whiskey Atlantic Challenge 2018. They arrived in Antigua on 21 January after rowing for 38 days, 14 hours and 32 Minutes thus setting a new race record for the PURE 4 category.  They endured adverse weather conditions, they coped with a capsize and during the crossing they all lost a lot of weight but they achieved their goal and not only completed but broke a record too – a wonderful result for all four of these men from Romania.  There was a marriage proposal from Ionu? Olteanu to his girlfriend which brought even more fun and excitement to arrival celebrations in Antigua of this marvellous team – many congratulations to you all.  The charity they are raising funds for is the Hospice Centre of Hope House.  http://hospice.galantom.ro/atlantic4
