Seven Hills biology teacher Bryce Carlson completed his remarkable journey Saturday, rowing solo across the North Atlantic in what appears to be record-shattering time, according to his Facebook page. Carlson unofficially beat the record by two weeks in becoming the first American to row solo and unsupported from west to east across the North Atlantic. Carlson finished the more than 2,000-mile trip in just over 38 days. The previous record for a west to east solo crossing is 53 days, 8 hours, 26 minutes. Carlson officially arrived in St. Mary’s Harbour on the Isles of Scilly on Saturday at 7:39 p.m. British Time (2:39 p.m. EDT). Scilly is off the southwest tip of England. He took off from St. John's, Newfoundland, on June 27.
