In this epic journey, Kiwi adventurer Grant 'Axe' Rawlinson is making an attempt to travel all the way from Singapore (where Axe is based) back to his home country of New Zealand, by using solely his human power - a journey of some 12,000km.

Phase one will involve rowing through the Indonesian archipalego and across the Timor Sea to Darwin. A distance of some 4,500km. 

Following this, together with his team mate Charlie Smith, they will complete the remainder of the journey comprising of a 4,000km bicycle ride across Australia and a 2,500km journey across the Tasman Sea.

Axe works for Kongsberg Maritime who, as a key customer of Valeport, are users of Valeport's Sound Velocity Products as part of their multi-beam echo sounder range.

Axe and Charlie will be keeping all their followers appraised of their progress via their website www.axeoneverest.com or via their facebook page https://www.facebook.com/GrantAxeRawlinson/
