rocking the boat

From the BBC website, this headline catches my eye:

BBC headline: all-female group the first to row round Britain
The story begins:

Four women have set a new record by becoming the first women to row non-stop around Britain, organisers say.


I remain unimpressed.

I have known groups of women who -particularly if shut up together for seven weeks on a 24ft boat – could have rowed, quarrelled, squabbled and bickered non-stop around the world.
