On January 11, 2007, award-winning adventurer Andrew McAuley bade an emotional farewell to his wife and toddler and set off on an epic journey. His aim: to paddle a sea kayak, solo, 1600km across the Tasman from Australia to New Zealand. Using extracts from Andrew's video diary and collected writings, his wife Vicki reveals a man born to push the limits, and tells the story of his 30 days at sea.
