Ever wondered what it would be like to travel solo in a kayak from Hobart, Tasmania to Riverton, on the South Island of New Zealand? Come and hear from Richard Barnes - the first person to kayak solo, non-stop and unassisted across the Tasman Sea in a journey that lasted 67 days and covered over 2000km.

Richard will tell us of the highlights and lowlights of living on the ocean, sharing his private notes of triumphs, disasters and trip statistics.
