Former professional rugby player, Damian Browne, talks about the hardship and isolation over the course of the nine weeks he spent at sea as he became one of the few to row solo across the Atlantic Ocean.

The journey saw the Irishman travel more than 4,000km without a support vessel and involved several complications, including capsizing twice in one day, suffering bloody facial injuries during high seas, and a near-miss with a cargo ship. YIKES!

More people have climbed Everest and been into space than successfully rowed solo across the Atlantic. The challenge took two years of gruelling preparation and mental strength that at times is beyond comprehensible. In this latest edition of Hard as Nails, Damian tells us exactly what it took to complete this mammoth challenge.
