A 64-year-old woman has become the oldest woman to row across an ocean, having learned to row just 6 years ago.

Sara Brewer and her 35-year-old rowing partner Ann Prestidge made the 3,000-mile (4,828 km) journey across the Atlantic Ocean in 86 days.

The pair set off from La Gomera in the Canary Islands on December 12 and reached the shores of Antigua last Saturday.
