KIKO: How to break the Atlantic rowing record after brain surgery

by Kiko Matthews

In February 2018, Kiko Matthews set out to row solo and unsupported, 3,000 miles across the Atlantic. She not only added her name to the handful of women who had successfully made the crossing solo but did so in a world record time of 49 days, 7 hours and 13 minutes – more than five days less than the previous record.

She had never rowed before deciding on this challenge. But following brain surgery after being diagnosed with a rare life-threatening condition, she set herself goals that pushed her mental and physical boundaries to the limit. In her book she vividly describes her epic voyage and what drove her to attempt it.
