Two men attempting to circumnavigate the globe in a wooden pedalboat are only 800 kilometres (600 miles) away from completing their Atlantic crossing after reaching the Turks and Caicos Islands. Jason Lewis and Steve Smith have covered 6436 kilometres (4000 miles) in 97 days and hope to make Florida in two to three weeks, friends helping them make their round-the-world trip to aid charity said on Saturday (January 28). Their eight metre (26-foot) boat suffered damage to the centre board as they crossed the reef surrounding the islands. The two Britons set off from London in July, pedal-boated across the Channel and biked through France, Spain and Portugal before tackling the Atlantic.
