70-year-old becomes oldest to row the Atlantic unassisted
Sky, 07 Feb 2021
In an emotional interview with Sky News, Frank Rothwell describes his row across the Atlantic after becoming the oldest person to do so without assistance.
The grandfather began his 3,000-mile challenge at Canary Island La Gomera on 12 December and crossed the finish line in Antigua in the Caribbean on 6 February - reuniting with Judith, his wife of 50 years.
Rothwell has raised £648,000 for Alzheimer's Research UK in tribute to his brother-in-law who died with the disease during his row.
