Bass Strait Challenge

Four time World Champion Windsurfer Allison Shreeve will be in Stanley (Tasmania) on Tuesday 24th March 2009 preparing to set a new world speed record across Bass Strait landing in Inverloch (Victoria) this week.As an Ambassador for CoastCare this Summer, the 27 year old Sydney resident plans to windsurf 250 km unassisted across the treacherous Strait to raise money for the "˜Life on the Edge” campaign helping the 60,000 volunteers around Australia who help keep our coastlines clean. After months of planning, training and fundraising, the weather conditions are finally here.  This Friday 27th appears to have the perfect conditions for the Challenge, so Allison has mobilised the 17 personnel supporting the Challenge to get into position.

Telstra has supplied the Next G internet connection on Callypso II (38ft support fishing boat) for the Challenge, allowing live video streaming on the day.  The Aerotrac GPS tracking device Allison will wear will track her exact position, speed and direction as she crosses Bass Strait on

“Crossing Bass Strait is no small feat, or to be taken lightly. I have done a three day Offshore crew course, Survival at sea course and obtained my radio license thanks to Pacific Sailing School to help me be prepared for this Challenge”

Along with many hours of endurance training across Botany Bay, Allison has prepared for the worst and will carry an EPIRB, GPS, Suunto X10 GPS watch, PFD 1 lifejacket, ICOM radio, flares, V sheet, dye, 3L Camelbak and harness.

Allison would like to thank her sponsors for their support: Electra Energy, VEC ACORN Charitable Trust, Club Marine, Pacific Sailing School, Jesus - All About Life, Audi, Calypso Fishing Charters, Musto, Telstra, Suunto, Icom, RFD, Zhik, VMG Blades, Aerotrac, Digiboat, Uvex, Balance Water and the Lapstone Hotel.
