New Jersey teenager Oliver Crane became the youngest person to row solo across the Atlantic Ocean early Sunday, when he arrived on the Caribbean island of Antigua to a crowd of cheering friends and family.

Crane completed his 3,000-mile voyage in 44 days after starting in the Canary Islands on Dec. 14
