A disabled oarsman has become the first person with cerebral palsy to row the Atlantic alone and unaided.
High winds meant Mr Boreham and his boat had to be towed to shore
Stuart Boreham, from Long Compton, Warwickshire, arrived in Port St Charles, Barbados, on Friday afternoon after spending four months at sea.
He crossed the finishing line off the island's north coast shortly before
midnight on Wednesday.
Heavy seas and high winds meant Mr Boreham and his boat MacMillan Spirit had to be towed to shore.
The 37-year-old, who also studies in Worcester, was greeted by family and friends aboard a support vessel.
He said he was looking forward to "sharing some very precious time" with his family.
"I've been at sea for 109 days, 12 hours and nine minutes so it's wonderful to be reunited with my family.
"I'm also looking forward to getting reacquainted with life on dry land."
Stuart's brother Steve, who was part of the welcoming party, described the
journey out to meet the voyager.
"Half of those on board became ill and we obtained a very small
insight into the conditions that Stuart has not just tolerated, but lived
through, rowed through, and kept faith in his ability and his boat through, for
109 days," he said.
Mr Boreham's adventure started in the Canary Islands on 15 November last year.
