It’s things like this that

It’s things like this that make me proud to be British: man smashes record for least distance covered in a boat in the greatest time.

Andrew Halsey, a 45-year-old disabled Briton, made rowing history on Friday by covering the least distance in the most time in a boat. He left Peru 72 days ago but is still 13,000 kilometres (8,000 miles) from his destination – no closer than on the day he embarked on his journey.
"You are rowing every day – it’s not like you’re just sitting here," he said.

The BBC article includes this picture:

If you look closely in the bottom left corner, I think you’ll see the problem – he’s still tied up!

EDIT: live footage of the rower from his boatcam:

I spent far too long on this. Not exactly B3ta quality, but quite fun for a first attempt at animation.
