The tale of the ground-breaking North Reef Expedition in 2011, with Rob Mercer and Mark Sundin.
Show Notes

A sea kayaking expedition through the Capricornia Quays islands in Queensland, with Rob Mercer, Mark Sundin & Chris James. Completed in July/August 2011, this trip traversed more than 400km of island chain, with crossings from 30-95km, culminating in the landing on the remote North Reef, a lighthouse island not previously reached by kayakers.
It was the first major trip undertaken in the Southern Hemisphere in modern fast touring sea kayaks, and showed what was possible with a fit, motivated and skilled set of paddlers in a fast sea kayak.
