A Devon oarsman has completed his solo bid to row across the Indian Ocean.
Simon Chalk is the youngest man to make the 3,200 mile journey
The Ocean Rowing Society website says Simon Chalk, a property developer from Newton Abbot, crossed the line of longitude in waters north of Mauritius on Sunday.
It means Mr Chalk, 30, has become the youngest man and the first Briton to row the 3,200 miles from Kalbarri, Western Australia.
Mr Chalk, 30, has been at sea for 108 days after setting off from Kalbarri on 27 February.
He will now make his way to Mauritius where a welcome party with the President of Mauritius is planned.
In the latest message on his website at BBC Devon Online Mr Chalk said: "My legs are so weak I'll probably need help walking.
"After 109 days at sea, it'll feel as if the land's moving for a while.
"I'll be land-sick!"
During the voyage Mr Chalk has had a constant battle with storm force winds and rough seas, and he was eventually forced to change his route.
This is not the first time he attempted the epic journey.
His last attempt on the Indian Ocean last May ended when he and his partner clung to their capsized boat for 15 hours in shark-infested waters before rescue.
The first and only other oarsman to complete the solo row was Swede Anders Svedlund in 1971, who was believed to have made the trip from Kalbarri to Madagascar in just 64 days.
