The story of Scott Donaldson’s relentless journey to be the first person to cross the Tasman sea solo in a kayak.
Unpredictable and unforgiving, the Tasman Sea is one of the most hostile stretches of water in the world.
An Australian adventurer attempted to kayak across in 2007, disappearing without a trace. In 2018 Kiwi adventurer Scott Donaldson spent two months alone at sea to achieve a world first. It was his third attempt, having fallen a heartbreaking 80 kilometres short in 2014.
Donaldson’s world first is an inspirational story of dogged perseverance, true Kiwi grit and relentless endurance.
