How the boat became “The Spirit of Orlando”
Spirited Adventurer and friend Orlando Rogers was tragically killed in a plane crash on May 15th 2011. He was 26 years of age and was a Royal Marine. I met Orlando when Rowing the Atlantic. We remained friends and supported each other in various projects. I was saddened by the news of his passing but inspired to attempt this row!
I am authorizing The Orlando Rogers Foundation to make a fundraising pledge page of my project to raise money in the UK for their organization.
(This project may represent multiple charities and organizations however the Orlando Rogers Foundation is the only UK based organization that has my authorization)

The Boat: a mono hull ocean rowing vessel “The Spirit of Orlando”
