Tasman Sea CrossingAccording to the press reports, our favorite Australian kayakers are now 550km southeast from their starting point. That equals to almost 1/4 of the 2200 km total distance.

They have had to paddle hard to avoid being carried north towards Lord Howe Island by a big ocean current and at times needing to paddle up to 18 hours a day.

I guess when you can't really get out of your boat, you don't have anything else to do but paddle. It's not like you can sit around the campfire trying to avoid the smoke.
