I was there the day he finished, at the same place he started, by the lighthouse at Cape Reinga. He had on that Saturday, 23 August 2014 become the first person to complete that amazing and difficult journey.
And he had become a wonderfully impressive and inspirational young man.
He did ask me to help him write the book
and I'm delighted to say that Nicola McCloy has filled that role wonderfully well.
It's a great read...
