Olympian are proud supporters of Lee Spencer, the Rowing Marine, who set off on his epic self-propelled voyage across the Atlantic on 10th Jan 2019.
Lee is raising funds and awareness for the Endeavour Fund and The Royal Marines Charity. In doing so, he will row at least 3,500 miles unsupported. He is also aiming for two world records during his solo crossing:
- To beat the current able-bodied record of 96 days, 12 hours and 45 minutes.
- To become the world’s first physically disabled person to row solo and unsupported from continental Europe to continental America, proving there is life beyond injury.

Lee Spencer is a Royal Marine Veteran who was medically discharged in September 2016 after losing his right leg when he stopped to assist at a road traffic collision in 2014.
