On November 27, 2011, Team Gallagher (TG) set off from Sydney to Auckland, aiming to row from harbour bridge to harbour bridge across the Tasman Sea in their 10-metre rowing boat Moana. On Monday afternoon, January 16, the Kiwi crew of Nigel Cheerie, Martin Berka, Andrew McCowan and James Blake -- son of yachting legend Sir Peter Blake -- pulled into Urupu- kapuka Island en route to Auckland, 51 days after leaving Sydney. There to meet them was Paihia resident Colin Quincey who knows exactly what it s like as he was first to row the Tasman Sea solo, from Hokianga to Noosa in 1977. There s no good time to row the unpredictable Tasman, Colin says. In December TG had exceptionally bad weather spending more days riding out 50 knot winds than actually rowing, at one point making no progress towards New Zealand for 21 days. Those inactive times are the hardest part of the voyage with little to do but sleep. But with seas crashing in, around and over the hull, noise and movement of the vessel prohibits sleep. I can t describe how hard it becomes. It s mentally hammering, we never realised how much of a mental challenge it would be, Nigel Cheerie says. There is obvious strong camaraderie between Team Gall- agher, despite low and despairing moments. A sign on the boat reads have you taken your concrete pill today? We guess they did. The team arrived in Auckland on January 20. One objective of the venture is to raise awareness of a Coral Garden Project. Visit teamgallagher transtasmanrow for this and other information. Save the date and party in the Kerikeri Domain Party in the Park, Saturday February 25, put a big red ring around this date now.
