Back to planning


tasman kayak

March next year looks the likely option for the relaunch.

Its back to the drawing board to sort out everything to get it done!

Thanks to all those who looked in and sent messages.

Thanks to sponsors for getting us to the startline.

Thanks to the base team BOB McDavitt pointing me in the right direction and Nigel for keeping it real on land.


The Aim: To row the Tasman Solo in record time and an immediate return crossing as a kayak solo in a World first event, has been shelved due to funding so we will go ahead with the hard part and consider the rest later.

The Aim: Solo Kayak from Coffs harbour in Australia to NZ. Aiming for the Naki as they are a good bunch but the wind has the most say in where to land...let you know a few days out.

Its difficult to answer this satisfactorily for most people because most focus on the hurdle rather than how to get over it.

Its about what feels right. Its taken many aspects both positive and negative to arrive here. I own this from conception to completion.

To raise awareness, in partnership with the Asthma foundation, of the importance of increasing aerobic activity levels in our day to day lives.
