World-first Bass Strait crossing on wing foil

Unemployed and confined to his house during Melbourne’s fifth lockdown, Andrew Englisch was depressed.

To keep his mind occupied, the father of two began searching online for a new hobby.

After only doing the sport for about a year, Mr Englisch decided he wanted to be the first person in the world to cross Bass Strait on a wing foil.

Starting at the north-eastern tip of Tasmania at Cape Portland, he island-hopped his way up the coast of Flinders Island then onto Deal Island and Refuge Cove.
