Crossing For Cancer

Tuesday, March 31, 2009 / Posted by Rambo / comments (1)

Well it's just over a week to go before i head off to Melbourne Victoria, for a 17 day Crossing of Bass Strait between Australia and Tasmania in an Outrigger canoe. Will it be cold? (i hate cold weather) Will we make it?..... The distance doesn't faze me (350k) having paddled the 404k of the Red Cross Murray Marathon in 5 days, but that is one wild and unpredictable ocean out there.

You will be able to track our progress with 10 min GPS positional updates on a Google Earth map here and on the Crossing for Cancer website thanks to Ian Vitch, manager of P.I. Plus P/L the Australian distributors of SPOT GPS Messenger who has provided us with a Tracking GPS and online user account.

For more info go to the Crossing for cancer website

And if you would like to support this Crossing with goods for the Auction or donate money to the Charity , please contact me on the email above.

I went to the wrong starting location so i missed my Jet Ski video platform to follow the entire race, by the time i got through traffic to the right location the event had already started.... bugger. This clip was shot from the bank of the river near the Noosa Bar and at the finish line.
