Jasmine Harris, a British national, has at age 21 become the youngest female to row solo across the Atlantic Ocean.

Harris rowed 4,800 kilometers from Spain to Antigua in 70 days, 3 hours and 48 minutes, setting a new world record for the youngest female to row across any ocean, Atlantic Campaigns has confirmed on Sunday.

Harrison posted from her twitter account that she had "a near collision with a drilling ship and two capsizes." She also wrote that she had visits from dolphins and consumed "lots of peanut butter and Nutella".
