Jamie Sparks and Luke Birch, two young guys, set a new
world record by rowing 3000 miles across the Atlantic to
raise money for Breast Cancer Care.
2 Boys in a Boat, a brief documentary from Grey London
and Duracell, which sponsored the voyage, vividly captures

excruciating salt-sores and no more than 80 minutes sleep
at a stretch. They have rowed 3000 nautical miles and lost

30%. Their hashtag sponsordays was trending in Italy,
and over 4,000 new Dacia’s were ordered.
