In Father’s Strokes

New Zealand adventurer Shaun Quincey, 25, hopes to follow his father Colin Quincey into the history books by becoming the second person to row solo the 2200km from Australia to New Zealand. His father made history in 1977 by becoming the first — and to date, only — person to row solo across the Tasman, crossing from New Zealand to Australia, his son said. Expecting the trip to take between 50 to 70 days, Quincey junior plans to depart from Coffs Harbour in January. He is raising funds and awareness for the NZ Surf Life Saving Association.
