My name is Stu Morton I’m a former Royal Marines Commando and in Jan 2018 I’ll be rowing the Atlantic solo from Portugal to Venezuela raising money for the JWF and R2R. Both charities focus on helping people with Mental Health Conditions.
I feel like my time in the Royal Marines was the biggest mental test I’ve had so far and it was a good few years ago now so I want to test myself again. I also want to show that even though of us suffer from head issues after traumatic experiences it doesn’t mean that we are weak minded and unable to push ourselves mentally.
My aim is to become the fastest person to row from mainland Europe to mainland South America and to hold the world record for this feat.
