The first person to simultaneously hold overall speed records on three oceans is Fiann Paul (Iceland): fastest row across the Atlantic east to west, at an average speed of 3.386 knots (6.27 km/h; 3.89 mph; 2011, team of six, on board Sara G); fastest row across the Indian Ocean east to west, at an average speed of 2.65 knots (4.90 km/h; 3.05 mph; 2014, team of seven, on board Avalon); and fastest row on the Mid-Pacific route east to west, at an average speed of 2.21 knots (4.09 km/h; 2.54 mph; 2016, team of four, on board Danielle).

Fiann's overall speed records were set on classic-class boats competing against both classic- and open-class vessels. Open-class rowboats have have higher cabins, allowing them to use wind power unlike classic-class rowboats.
