When most people think of history, they think of events that took place long ago, involving people who are long dead. However, history is being made every day, by people who are very much alive. Take, for example, Smith Handed, who has just made history by becoming the first person to row solo across the Atlantic Ocean.
Smith, who is originally from England, set out from the Canary Islands on December 12th, 2019, and arrived in Antigua on February 29th, 2020, after rowing for 59 days and 7 hours. His journey was not without its challenges, as he had to contend with strong winds and waves, as well as the occasional bout of seasickness. However, he persevered and has now achieved something that nobody else has ever done.
In addition to being an incredible physical feat, Smith’s journey is also a remarkable achievement from a historical standpoint. When he set out, he was attempting to become the first person to row solo across the Atlantic Ocean from west to east. This is a feat that has been attempted by many people over the years, but nobody has ever succeeded.
Now that he has accomplished this, Smith Handed has made history and will go down in the annals of history as the first person to row solo across the Atlantic Ocean from west to east. This is an incredible achievement, and one that he should be very proud of.
