Sandy is prepering her next leg of her expedition, hears a bit lifted of her website about the trip

Retracing the Oskar Speck Journey
A few years ago someone told me about a kayaker who paddled all the way from Germany to Australia.

Oskar Speck set out in his folding kayak on the Danube River in 1932.  Seven years, 3 kayaks and 50 000km later, he landed in Australian waters.  This has to be one of the most amazing kayak journeys of all time.  I am going to find out.

My plan is to retrace as much of the Speck journey as possible over a series of expeditions during the next 5 years.
In between stages I will be returning to my home in Australia to work.

its well worth the read about Oscar and his epic trip.

One thought on “Sandy Robson

  1. Oscar Speck was a friend of mine, he did talk about the trip occasionally. The part of the trip he talked about the most was crossing the Timor Sea. Good Luck for your venture. Regards Jennifer Kenna
