LEE OUT ON THE WATER WITH SUPPORT FROM THE ROYAL MARINES CHARITY

20/07/18

Lee Waters has supported the Norway 75 team on their historic Norwegian journey.

On Wednesday 11th June, the Norway 75 team completed the fifth and final paddle of their historic endeavour.

The team have been supported by former Royal Marine and sea kayak guide Lee Waters. Lee’s intimate knowledge of being out at sea and how to best live off the land in a sustainable manner has been invaluable to the team.

Lee is one of the many examples that The Royal Marines Charity have supported in their transition from military to civilian life and working towards good mental health.

In 2016, Lee was medically discharged from the Royal Marines due to significant physical injury.

The Royal Marines Charity are proud to have been able to assist Lee from his transition from the military into civilian life.

We have now completed our fifth and final paddle of this historic endeavour. From start to finish and with ever changing conditions, we have been supported by former Royal Marine and sea kayak guide @lee_john_waters. - This is a massive thank you to Lee for sharing his intimate knowledge of being out at sea and also how best to live off the land in a sustainable manner. We would also like to thank @thermcharity for helping Lee in his transition from a career in the @royalmarines to becoming a sea kayak guide and for providing him with the necessary support to join us here in Norway. - Lee is but one example of the many individuals @thermcharity support in their career transition and in dealing with issues such as poor mental health.
