A very special Baton handover was made today, a Baton that will be rowed over 3,000 miles across the Atlantic Ocean in a record breaking attempt by Baton Trustee Lee Spencer.

The Baton was handed to Lee The Rowing Marine at the BBC Studios Plymouth today by the Baton’s Nigel Chas Fowler Lee will be travelling to Gibraltar soon where he will embark on his epic challenge to be the first amputee to achieve the crossing.

Lee was a member of the legendary Row2Recovery crew (the first amputees to row the Atlantic in 2015) is much admired and known, as many others suffering traumatic injuries, for not letting letting them define his life.

We will be following Lee as he battles the Atlantic, please follow and support him as he is also raising funds for military charities as well as carrying the Baton’s Message…https://www.thebaton.co.uk/what-is-the-baton/the-message/
