LEMON Tree Passage was a stop-off point for solo circumnavigator Lindsay Warner on Sunday 27 June.

The South Australian resident started his epic jet ski journey on April 1 this year from Albany WA and after crossing the Great Australian Bight he worked his way up the coast of Victoria and NSW.

He covers around 400 kilometres per day, weather permitting.

High seas and the Covid lockdown in Victoria slowed his progress somewhat but he has had no mechanical problems at sea and tows a pontoon behind his craft carrying fuel tanks.

Dorothea Willey from Tanilba Bay, who greeted her friend at the foreshore, said that Lindsay took all safety precautions which included a satellite phone and a beacon.

“We watch his progress via a satellite tracker,” she said.

“We met him in outback WA when he was on a solo motorbike trek,” she added.

“Lindsay spent the night ashore in Lemon Tree Passage before continuing on his epic Australian circumnavigation,” she remarked.

“We wish him well,” she said.
