Royal Marines Atlantic Row

Posted by Mike C in Oct 2020

An inspiring crew of Royal Marines will take on the high seas with their muscle-power this Winter, with an epic row across the Atlantic in aid of veterans charity Cockleshell Endeavour - and we're proud to be lending a little support.

The two Royal Marines and two former commandos will take on the 3000 mile crossing from Gran Canaria to Barbados in December, raising both awareness of, and funds for, the Cockleshell Endeavour Foundation and the Royal Marines Charity Fund.  Cockleshell Endeavour uses water-based endurance sport to help Royal Marines veterans overcome their physical and mental injuries to get their lives back on track.

Sam ‘Nutty' Edwards and David ‘Brucey' Bruce – both serving with 42 Commando at Bickleigh, near Plymouth – will join Afghan veterans Juniour Mcilhiney and Will Schweppe in the challenge.

At a recent fund-raising event at the White Thorn Inn at Shaugh Prior near Plymouth, supported by Dartmoor Brewery, the crew were able to show off their boat and gather much-needed financial support for the venture and for their chosen cause.
