Bass Strait Challenge

Thursday, 26 Mar, 2009

See TODAY's interviews with Allison here and search "Allison Shreeve"

Allison Shreeve has successfully completed windsurfing 115km of the Bass Strait Challenge in formidable conditions with 30-35 knot winds and 3-4m swells. In doing so she has exceeded CoastCare’s “Life on the Edge” campaign target for people from all walks of life to travel 100km of Australia’s coastline using non-motorised activity.   Allison departed from Stanley in Tasmania at 7.52am expecting 20kt winds from the NW, swinging 25-35kts for a few hours then moderating to 20kts SW in the afternoon with a 1-2m swell.  In reality Allison was faced with 20-25kts from the NW then 25-35kts W/SW for six hours straight with swells peaking over 4m at times.   

After the first four hours Allison was nearly half way across Bass Strait and on target to smash the current record.  The middle third of the crossing proved to be the greatest challenge and after a courageous nine hour slog resulting in severe cramping and the onset of hypothermia, Allison’s challenge was ultimately brought to an end when she was helped on board Calypso II, her support boat, before she was able to set foot on Victorian shores. 

Bass Strait Challenge  

A real highlight of Allison’s Bass Strait crossing was being escorted by about 50 dolphins showing off by surfing through the face of the waves and diving under her board.  During a break, her companion was a beautiful Albatross out in the middle of nowhere, and a couple of friendly seals made an appearance.  “This whole experience is one I’ll never forget”. The “Life on the Edge” campaign officially concludes on 31st March, so there is still time to show your support. Some video footage and photos can be seen, and donations can be made on

Allison would like to thank her sponsors Electra Energy, Club Marine, Pacific Sailing School, Jesus - All About Life campaign, Musto, Audi, Jetstar, Suunto, Icom, Calypso Fishing Charters, Digiboat, Aerotrac, Telstra Next G, Lapstone Hotel, VMG Blades, Uvex, RFD, Zhik, and Balance Water.
