Kiwi grant "axe" rawl­in­son to row tas­man solo

Adventure - - Dispatched -

Kiwi Grant ‘Axe’ Rawl­in­son will start the fi­nal leg of his 4500km ex­pe­di­tion, row­ing the Tas­man Aus­tralia to New Zealand in Oc­to­ber. The jour­ney to date in­cluded a two man row from Sin­ga­pore down through the In­done­sian Archipalego to Dar­win, a cy­cle the length of Aus­tralia and now with the row to go to make home, New Zealand. Grant orig­i­nally planned to row with a part­ner on the Tas­man cross­ing, how­ever af­ter spend­ing a great deal of time alone dur­ing his cy­cle leg across the Aus­tralian con­ti­nent, he found the ex­pe­ri­ence and chal­lenge to be richer and more ful­fill­ing when he was alone. We wish his well on his jour­ney.
