Four men were attempting to set a world record by rowing across the Atlantic Ocean this weekend. Their plans were thwarted when their boat capsized. Seventy-two days of journey culminated in hours and hours of trying to right their capsized boat. 

Two of the rowers are from Seattle, including Captain Jordan Hanssen. Jordan talks with Ross Reynolds about the wave that turned their boat, their time spent waiting for rescue, and how despite how the journey ended it was a lunar rainbow that left the greatest impression on him.
