Row 2 Recovery

January 2016

We are delighted to have supported the incredible Atlantic adventures of the Row2Recovery team once more. The current team is heading East having left La Gomera in the Canary Islands in December, rowing 3,000 miles across the Atlantic.

Row2Recovery supports Adaptive Rowing for the British Military Wounded, Injured and Sick in partnership with British Rowing and Help for Heroes. Through extreme Adaptive Rowing endeavors, R2R has raised over £1,000,000 for British military charities.

In December 2015, four military amputees set out to tackle 3,000 miles across the Atlantic ocean, rowing in constant two-hour shifts, raising money for their fellow injured service personnel.

This is the charity’s third and possibly final Atlantic crossing; but the first ever with an all-amputee crew. The team will finish in Antigua in the West Indies in late January / early February.

The team is led by serving Light Dragoon Lance Corporal Cayle Royce, MBE. Cayle, 29, from Devon underwent a double leg amputation and lost the fingers on his left hand following an IED blast in Helmand, Afghanistan whilst serving in the Brigade Reconnaissance Force in 2012. Cayle took part in the race as a member of the 2013/14 Row2Recovery crew and came third in the race overall, beating 13 other international teams.

The team is raising funds for Blesma, The Endeavour Fund, Help for Heroes and the inland adaptive programme of Row2Recovery.
