We’ve followed the various adventures and expeditions of Grant “Axe” Rawlinson for some time in our publications, including his eventful Everest campaigns. But his current project takes the cake for scope and audacity. He’s travelling 12,000 kilometres from Singapore to his home country of New Zealand, in a rowboat. As we speak, Grant is somewhere in the Timor Sea between Bali and Darwin, with his crewmate Charlie Smith, approaching the halfway mark of their massive journey. The two Singaporebased expats are in a 6.8-metre, custom-built ocean rowing boat, Simpson’s Donkey, named after the legend of an ANZAC soldier in World War I. They’ve had their ups and downs on the trip so far, from wonderful welcomes by the local inhabitants of isolated tropical islands, to battling ferocious storms in the Java Sea.
