Old Strengths. New Challenge. 3000 Miles
Since April 1969, and the fifth patrol of HMS Resolution, there has always been a Royal Navy Ballistic Missile Submarine at sea, providing a Continuous At Sea Deterrent (CASD), and ensuring that the UK remains safe.
This year (2019) marks 50 years of unbroken service in maintaining CASD and the Royal Navy is planning to recognise the human endeavour and commitment necessary to sustain this vital operation.
In December 2019, four Royal Navy Submariners will row unsupported across the Atlantic Ocean departing from the Canary Islands to reach Nelson's Dockyard Antigua a month later. Their aim is to be the first team to cross the finish line, and to raise over £100,000 to provide Mental Health and Wellbeing support to the Submarine community, collaborating with the Royal Navy and Royal Marines Charity
