Crossing the Ditch by James Castrission

My husband loved this book ¬ it’s a real adventure book for blokes. In 2008 James Castrission and Justin Jones embarked on an adventure to cross ‘the ditch’, the Tasman, in a kayak not long after the death of fellow Australian adventurer Andrew McAuley. With more than two thousand kilometres of treacherous seas and dangerously unpredictable weather and currents‚ not to mention the real and ever-present threat of sharks, they arrived in New Zealand‚ sunburnt‚ underweight‚ physically and mentally wrecked ... and‚ most of all‚ ecstatic to be alive.
