In an upcoming issue we will be featuring a story about a young boatbuilder from Brisbane who is planning to become the youngest person ever to row across the Pacific Ocean – Tom Robinson.

In 2022 Tom Robinson aims to become the youngest person ever to row solo across the Pacific Ocean. The journey will cover over 8000 nautical miles, from Chile to Australia. Tom will spend up to nine months at sea in a vessel he has designed and built by hand. Tom hopes to make landfall along the way to resupply and explore the cultures of the Pacific.

Tom is no stranger to the sea, having amassed many offshore miles in a variety of craft from rowing boats to racing yachts. This adventure will be the realisation of a long held dream.

Tom is currently looking for sponsorship to help fund the expedition.
