A little about us

A new chapter in New Zealand sporting adventure begins this October when the four-man 'Team
Gallagher' rowing team will aim to become the first New Zealand team to cross the Tasman by oar
power.

The challenge will require the team to complete some half a million strokes over 1,400 nautical miles - using the iconic harbour bridges of Sydney and Auckland as the start and finish lines.
