CHARLOTTE, N.C.--()--Latitude 35 crew members Nick Khan and Greg Wood have been evacuated from Carlisle’s American Spirit after encountering difficult medical situations during the Talisker Atlantic Challenge — the World’s Toughest Row.

Given every reason to terminate the effort, American Spirit’s captain Jason Caldwell and crewmate Tom Magarov have, in a demonstration of true courage and determination, elected to continue on as a pair and represent Carlisle Crew USA in the highest possible professional manner.
