The third- and fourth-place boats in the 2016-17 Talisker Whisky Atlantic Challenge, Soulo Gav (Eire) and the American Oarsmen (US), arrived at English Harbor, Antigua, a few hours apart on Wednesday evening, February 1. The Oarsmen completed their race with the fantastic time of 49 days, 14 hours, and 4 minutes.
