Welcome to the Clan Maclean Association in the United States (formerly Clan Gillean USA), a member of Clan Maclean International. This is a place for American Macleans to connect with other kin, clan, and family.
We work hard to preserve and share the history of our ancient clan and the genealogical records of its members; we also take pride in continuing the traditions, music, and stories of Macleans throughout the world. Many members volunteer to represent the Macleans at Scottish games and gatherings throughout the United States. Occasionally we host special events such as galas, ceilidhs, and other get-togethers. We hope you join us for one!
We invite you to join us and connect with the ancient world-wide Maclean family.
Lachlan, Jamie and Ewan MacLean beat the previous record of a trio rowing the Atlantic Ocean which was 41 days.
Three brothers from Scotland have set a world record after rowing the Atlantic Ocean in just 35 days . The MacLean siblings, known as BROAR, set off from La Gomera in the Canary Islands on December 12 and completed their 3,000-mile row to Antigua in the Caribbean on Thursday. It means the brothers - Lachlan, 21, Jamie, 26, and Ewan, 27 - beat the previous record of a trio rowing the Atlantic Ocean , which was 41 days, with the timing of 35 days, nine hours and nine minutes.
This is without doubt, the defining experience of my life. It was incredibly difficult but the way we came together, the way our bodies and minds coped with every single challenge, will stay with me for a long time.
