Adventurer Pete prepares for the toughest leg of challenge
ADVENTURER Pete Goss is about to start the "most risky and remote" section of his latest adventure.
The Torpoint sailor set off just before New Year to circumnavigate the Australian island of Tasmania by sea kayak.
The 930-mile circumnavigation, with Scotsman Andy Warrender, is expected to take up to two months.
Pete said: "Making it to Strachan is a real milestone as it means we have taken a big chunk out of the West Coast which is the most challenging side of the island.

"It also means that we are now a quarter of the way round – we can't get complacent though because the next section is without doubt the hardest, the most risky and remote.
"We camped in a penguin colony one night which was amazing.
"We have seen albatross, big sting rays, dolphins, pelicans, black swan, wallabies and a heap of other wildlife.
Pete added: "I always miss the Westcountry, but I have to say that the one thing I don't miss is the winter. It's cold here at times, but the real blessing is that we have lots of light.
"As with all these trips it's family that I miss the most."
