Artemis transatlantic rowing crew, who smashed the record for rowing from New York to England set 114 years ago by a couple of mad Norwegians, met the Queen Mary on the way. Congratulations to the Artemis, though I have added respect for the original guys, who were correctly dressed for the occasion.

The Invisible Workshop is back home from hospital. His crewmates rowed across the harbour to welcome him home. Here's wishing you a speedy return to the water, Ben.
