Support Fund for Andrew's family
Tuesday, February 13, 2007

The New South Wales canoe club have set up a trust fund for Andrew McAuley's family, following his tragic disappearance less than 100km short of his 1,500km solo crossing to New Zealand. If you would like to donate something to help his wife Vicky, and 3 year old son Finlay then the details are below.

I will be donating a percentage of sales from "This is the Sea 3" to the fund, partly because this DVD contains the story of Andrew's recent 800km journey down the Antarctic peninsula, which he filmed. For every DVD sold I'll give US$1.50 to Andrew's family.

With sad timing, this documentary of Andrew's Antarctic expedition won "best paddling adventure travel story" at it's world premiere at the Reel Film Festival in Canada last Saturday. The film "Epics in Ice - An Antarctic Kayaking Odyssey" is a fantastic story, where Andrew's love of exploration and wild places really shows through. The film festival is now on tour across Canada in over 30 different venues. The organisers, Rapid Media, have said they'll tell people how they can donate at each event.

Here are the details,

Andrew McAuley Support Fund

Account name: Andrew McAuley
Bank: Commonwealth Bank of Australia
BSB: 062505

If you find a wire transfer too cumbersome, you can go to the NSW Sea Kayak Club's web site and make an online donation using your credit card:

Your thoughtfulness and generosity is fantastic. Very proud of the kayaking community at this very sad time.

That's a very generous move, Justine, and I hope it inspires others to give. In time it will be a great comfort to Andrew's family to know he had such support and freindship all around the world.

Look forward to meting you at RnR in Australia.
