Once again Xcell Oars & Sculls are congratulating Charlie Pitcher for yet another outstanding record-breaking ocean row using Xcell X3 Ocean Rowing Oars.
Ending in March 2013 and battling huge waves and exhaustion, Charlie broke the long-standing record for single–handed rowing the Atlantic, some 2,700 miles from the Canaries to Barbados, in 35 days and 38 minutes so beating the record by an incredible 5 days, 9 hours and 30 minutes.
In discussions with Charlie and his new company Rannoch Adventures, Xcell developed 100% carbon fibre large sweep Macon blades fitted into Xcell’s X3 standard ocean rowing shafts constructed of 100% carbon fibre, with Kevlar-overwrap at the high-tensile pressure points.
Charlie has achieved such an outstandingly impressive performance using these new blades that Xcell are proposing to offer them to all future ocean rowing contestants .
Well done Charlie Pitcher!
