Andrew McAuley’s 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 sores, fever, and encounters with sharks and sea snakes along the way. In 2006 he led a team of Australia's leading sea kayakers on an expedition to the Antarctic Peninsula, paddling over 800km to the Antarctic Circle. Andrew is currently regarded as one of Australia’s most accomplished expedition sea kayakers. Here’s a few stories of his recent adventures:
