A 21-year-old swimming teacher has become the youngest woman to row solo across the Atlantic Ocean.
After arriving in the Caribbean she said the experience had been “amazing” and “everything I wanted it to be”.
“There’s nothing like it, actually getting away from everything – social media, bad news, from literally everything,” she said.
Ms Harrison’s crossing was not without difficulty and she capsized just two days before crossing the finishing line, injuring her elbow in the process.
Despite being cut off from the world, she was still able to speak to her mother every day via satellite phone.
As well as rowing into the record books, Ms Harrison has also raised more than £10,000 for charity.
The previous youngest female solo ocean rower was 22-year-old Katie Spotz from the USA who rowed the Atlantic east-to-west between 3 January and 14 March 2010.
The youngest person to have made the crossing solo is student Lukas Haitzmann, who completed it in 2019 at the age of 18.
