NEWS FLASH! Allison to Windsurf Across Bass Strait

Thursday, 4 Oct, 2007

Now that Allison is back in Australia, she has her sights set on attempting to sail her windsurfing board across Bass Strait in record time unassisted. The 240km stretch between Tasmania and mainland Australia is notoriously rough and known as one of the most treacherous water ways in the world.

Nick Maloney windsurfed across Bass Strait in 1998 in 22 hours being the first and only windsurfer to achieve such a feat.  Following this was Michael Blackburn’s record breaking run in 2005 sailing across on his Laser dingy boat in 13 hours. Allison hopes to set a new world speed record across the Strait in December this year, weather and funding permitting. “I have wanted to do a travel story, or a long distance event for some time, but due to RS:X Olympic commitments, I have been unable to focus on anything else.” Allison will sail from Stanley in the North West corner of Tasmania to Tidal River in Wilsons Promontory, Victoria.

Allison is doing some intensive endurance training on and off the water to ensure she can last the distance. Along side her training schedule she is looking for sponsors to support her efforts, therefore if you would like to sponsor Allison please contact her at allison@aus911.com for further information.
