After a series of delays, a team of rowers from around the globe has finally set off from Geraldton on a mission to create a new world record.
The seven rowers have piled into their 14-metre-long vessel and began their first strokes towards South Africa.
They plan to take turns rowing across the Indian Ocean so that the oars will continue rolling non-stop.
The team hope to complete the 8,500 kilometre journey in about 60 days.
If achieved, the journey would become a world first.
