You might remember Lindsay from an earlier feature in the NOTA when he dropped into Lemon Tree Passage to link up with Dorothea Willey, a friend he met on one of his outback adventures in Western Australia.

“We were confident that he would make it,” remarked Dorothea.

“He took every precaution and his exact location was always known via satellite tracking,” she added.

“He had back-up at various points along the way and had two forced quarantine stopovers due to the Covid border restrictions.

“There were no major issues with weather or mechanical problems,” she said.

Lindsay’s 15,000 km odyssey is even more remarkable when you consider that it was self funded and his Kawasaki jet ski was second hand.

The fuel bill alone was well over $30,000.

Lindsay’s 2019 ‘warm up’ for the adventure saw him circle Tasmania.

He was keen to promote men’s mental health issues along the way.
