The race is on!
Another West Aussie currently rowing across the Indian Ocean is Rob Barton. Rob is rowing solo and planning to go all the way to Africa to raise funds for mental health charities.
Rob joined Chris and I when we were doing sea trials with Goldie and planning the crossing. He set off from Carnarvon a couple of weeks before Goldie's departure and you can track his progress here: Robs Row. What's nice is you can see wind direction on his tracker so you can see why Goldie has chosen the heading it has and picked up a lot of speed in the last 24hrs.
Awesome progress Rob - I don't think Goldie and the boys will catch you!
