The Tasman is a huge challenge in any vessel let alone a 76cm wide kayak solo. We need your help to make it happen.

Main image

The Tasman has yet to be kayaked solo. We need your support to knock this one off.

Scott will put in the hard yards in the water but this challenge is massive in every aspect.

It is unique in every area such as space, duration, attitude, mentality, safety, conditioning, and management. It requires unique specialist equipment.

We have a great team forming behind him but still need two major sponsors at 50K.

It would be fantastic if at least one of them was NZ! Every bit helps $10 is a battery $10 000 is a lithium battery bank. Everyone can help!

If you have none to spare then please share this story and a few FB posts - its a big help!

If you "givealittle" it adds up and you are part of it.

If you give $5000 you have got yourself a speaker post event and a sponsor sticker on the boat.

Lets give this a Kiwi nudge.

Use of Funds:

Funds go toward the boat and equipment.

10% of anything raised here will go to Asthma NZ for education.

If we exceed 110K any further will go to Asthma.
