Two Frenchwomen crossed the Indian Ocean by boat

Two French athletes set a world record, swimming across the Indian Ocean in a rowing boat for 84 days. This event athletes beat the record of male rowers.

In addition, the 27-year-old Laurence de Rankour and the 33-year-old Laurence Grand Clément were the first women who decided to go on a sea voyage on oars.

Almost for three months, fearless conquerors of the ocean expanses overcame 3100 nautical miles. Incidentally, I note that the French athletes beat the record of men, with a serious margin. Three years ago, along a similar route on the oars were two British. Their result was 102 days.
