Briton Lee Spencer, a 49 year-old single leg amputee, has beaten the able-bodied World Record for rowing solo across the Atlantic, in his boat - Hope - from mainland Europe to mainland South America, by 36 days. By reaching Cayenne, French Guiana he has become the world’s first physically disabled person to do the crossing and completed it in 60 days, leaving Portimao, Portugal, less than two months ago. Lee undertook the row to demonstrate that no-one should be labelled or defined by their disabilities whilst also raising money for the Endeavour Fund and The Royal Marines Charity.
