Kiwi legend Rob Hamill to join the Rowing from Home to Home expedition!
I am am very happy to announce that Rob Hamill from New Zealand will join the Rowing from Home to Home team!
Rob is a well known kiwi, having represented New Zealand in the Olympics and world championships for rowing, but perhaps most well recognised for winning the first ever trans-Atlantic rowing race in 1997, together with Phil Stubbs.
Rob has a fascinating past, through his adventurous and sporting background, to his tragic family history with his brother’s horrific murder in Cambodia under the Khmer Rouge. He brings a wealth of experience in large and complicated campaigns, positivity, and ‘can-do’ attitude to the team. Rob will join me in Darwin in early 2017, and we will get to know each other a little better on the 4,500km cycle ride across Australia, whilst making plans for the final stage of the journey – the knarly Tasman Crossing. If Rob can handle my jokes for 4,500km across Australia I am sure he should be able to put up with me for two months on the Tasman as well! But time will tell!

Welcome to the team Rob and thanks for being part of the journey!
