Today, Row2Recovery made history, becoming the first all-amputee team to row across an ocean. The 4 man team from the UK is made up of Cayle Royce MBE (29), Paddy Gallagher (31), Nigel Rogoff (56) and Lee Spencer (46). They completed the Talisker Whisky Atlantic Challenge in 46 days 6 hours and 49 minutes.

Row2Recovery completed the arduous challenge to raise funds for for Help for Heroes, Blemsa and Prince Harry’s Endeavour Fund. The crew received a congratulatory call via Skype from Price Harry shortly after their arrival.

Skipper Cayle comments: “We are so proud to be the first all amputee team to row an ocean and extremely humbled by the support we have received. We are very proud to be able to support injured servicemen and women everywhere through the Endeavour Fund, Help for Heroes and BLESMA. Although totally exhausted we are ready to celebrate the fact we have just conquered 3,000 miles in the world’s toughest ocean rowing race. There is life beyond injury – that’s our message, we hope it’s out there!”

This is the second time that Skipper Cayle Royce, MBE has taken on the challenge.
