Crossing For Cancer - Video

Crossing For Cancer 2009 - Across Bass Strait in an Outrigger Canoe from Ocean Sports Media on Vimeo.

2009 crossing of Bass Strait (Australia to Tasmania - 375km) in an Outrigger canoe, raising approx $30k for Cancer Research and honoring two worthy men, Chris Robinson the original Skipper of the famous Greenpeace "Rainbow Warrior" (which the French Secret Service blew up in New Zealand in 1985). Chris passed away before we left, he was to be our Support boat Skipper. The other is Peter Corbishley, who makes the Outrigger Connection Mirage canoe here in Australia. Pete has cancer and paddled the entire Crossing.

If you like inspirational stories, adventure action with fun and beautiful remote islands, follow us as we relive the Crossing and raise awareness for Cancer Research.

Watch out for the big “hit” on the red canoe in slow-mo on the Deal Island to Killiecrankie leg.

UPDATE : 2014 Pete Corbishley amazingly has beaten his cancer and lives life to fullest.
