Follow the Yellow

Shared by |tags,

Cadel Evans, who this week became Australia’s first winner of the Tour de France, isn’t the only fella who looks good in yellow.

Tasmanian Rob Pennicott is on a circumnavigation of Australia. He and his crew are raising funds for Rotary’s End Polio Now campaign. Two months into their philanthropic quest they’re in Albany (WA) and well past the half-way mark of their voyage.

Rob’s two dinghies are yellow. Not a lot of men can wear yellow well but, like Cadel, he looks good in the colour does Rob. Not that he is overly fussed by appearances. Not at the minute anyway. Apart from raising millions of dollars for the End Polio Now campaign Rob has the challenge of negotiating the moody and mighty Southern Ocean on the way to Adelaide, Melbourne and the home waters of Tasmania before returning to Sydney where the voyage began.

It’s too early yet to say Rob’s on his home turf but this former rock lobster fisherman who now runs cruises from Bruny Island knows the Southern Ocean well. Let’s hope his long run home to Tassie, and his ultimate finish line, is as incident free as Cadel’s ride into Paris.

At follow.theyellowboatroad.com you can donate to the campaign and follow Rob’s circumnavigation. More donations will be gratefully received.
