kayaking resume is long and varied, and reflects his
passion for the sport. Andrew has three crossings of
Bass Strait to his credit by three different routes,
including the first ever direct, non-stop crossing in 2003.
This crossing remains unrepeated by anyone. In
2004 he paddled across the Gulf of Carpentaria, an open
ocean crossing of 530km over 6.5 days, battling salt

Antarctic Circle. Andrew is currently regarded as one of
Australia’s most accomplished expedition sea kayakers.
