Ex-Royal Marine, Lee Spencer to row the Atlantic Ocean

In 2019, former Royal Marine will set off to row the Atlantic Ocean solo and unsupported to raise awareness and funds for Endeavour Fund and The Royal Marines Charity.

Lee is attempting to be the first physically disabled person to row 3,500 miles from East to West across the Atlantic. He is aiming to beat the able-bodied record set by Stein Hoff in 2002 of 96 days, 12 hours and 45 minutes.

Lee served in the Royal Marines for 24 years without gaining any injuries, he lost his right leg after being hit by flying debris whilst helping a motorist that had crashed. This injury changed his life and rowing became an enormous part of his recovery.

In 2015, Lee was part of the first-ever all-amputee Britsh military team to successfully row an ocean.  They were a team of 4 veterans, with just 3 legs between them and completed the endeavour in 46 days, 6 hours and 49 minutes.
