Axe returns to Australia
Kiwi Grant ‘Axe’ Rawlinson is returning to Australia after putting a halt to his Tasman row to NZ due to the conditions seeing him going around in circles.
This was the final leg rowing across the Tasman Sea to New Zealand, of his adventure that started in Singapore early in the year.
Over the past few days a few things have happened to Axe and here is an update.
