DOUBLE GUINNESS WORLD RECORD ROW, January - March 2019
Lee Spencer, a single leg amputee, is the first physically disabled person to have rowed solo across the Atlantic. He smashed the previous able-bodied record, set by Stein Hoff in 2002, by over a month and gained two new World Records.
Leaving Portugal on 9 January 2019, Lee crossed the line on 11 March 2019 in French Guiana, South America, at 60 days, 16 hours and 6 minutes. He had rowed unsupported for a total of 3,500 miles.
He faced waves of up to 40 foot, four 15-metre sperm whales swimming beneath him, being pursued by a large shark, a bout of gastroenteritis and various technical issues. He slept for just two hours at a time, all while battling the daily routine at sea and the challenges of being a single leg amputee.
The goal behind Lee's mission was to enforce his message to the world; that no one need be defined by their disability, mental or physical.

Lee 'Frank' Spencer is a former Royal Marine who served for 24 years without suffering any serious injuries. One day in 2014, while off duty, he pulled over to help a motorist on the M3. He was hit by flying debris and had to have his leg amputated. That day, his life changed for ever.
Now known as 'The Rowing Marine', Lee is not only a Royal Marine Commando, Atlantic Ocean rower and multi Guinness World Record holder, he is a father, husband and guitar playing pirate.
