Tassie tourism operator Rob Pennicott is closing in on Yapoon, in Queensland, on his three-month circumnavigation of Australia. Pennicott is out to raise millions of dollars for Rotary’s End Polio Now campaign.
It’s day nine of the voyage. At the time of writing $53,701 has been donated to the cause. That’s enough for some 80,000 polio vaccinations. Money for a lot more yet is going to be raised. Rob is after millions of $10 donations. The public can also bid for seats on his dinghies and already some of the winning bidders have been cruising with him.

Rob's journey so far

The bidding is already keen for many of the Tasmanian legs (4-11 August). The current bid for the King Island to Strahan leg is $500. The bid for the Strahan to Hobart leg is $1550; Hobart to St Helens has $615 on it and St Helens to Flinders Island has so far commanded $200. A $2600 bid for a leg along the Western Australian coast is the highest bid so far.

The Tassie legs though will come with a whole lot of inside information. Rob is a former crayfisherman and knows the Tasmanian coast well. Cruising with Rob in Tassie is bound to give any passengers, at least those who aren’t fishermen, a whole new and interesting perspective of the island(s).
Remember, any contributions above $10 are eligible to be entered in the draw for two people to travel on the final leg from to Sydney. This will include flights from anywhere in the world, along with two nights’ accommodation and a five-day holiday in Tasmania.
