First all-female rowers to set off across Bass Strait

Red Nose musselrowers

AN all-female team of rowers will begin their journey from Port Welshpool on Sunday, February 12, and cross one of the most treacherous bodies of water in Australia – the Bass Strait.

The team will row over 320 kilometres in very challenging conditions to help raise money for Red Nose.

The trip will take six full days of rowing, ranging from 40 to 70 km per day, and conclude in Musselrowe Bay, Tasmania.
