Doctors Ted Welman from Petworth and Jack Faulkner from Brighton are halfway in both distance and fundraising as they attempt a world record time for rowing the Indian Ocean.

‘Doctors Adrift’ were halfway after 27 days - two weeks ahead of their 84-day target.

They hope to become the fastest pair to make the 3,600-mile journey and break the world record in the process.

Doctors Adrift are also halfway to their target of raising £100,000 for global medical charity Medecins sans Frontieres (MSF).
