Rob Turner has lived (and survived) an adventurous life which culminated in self publishing Home the Hard Way. It is the story of his attempted world circumnavigation (1992/95) starting from Sydney, and thwarted in Saudi Arabia and the enforced return to Perth against the prevailing winds and currents in his 7.1 metre yacht. De-masting, skipper overboard, pirates, strandings and near misses with massive ships are just some of the adventures which make this a fascinating talk.
Please RSVP to reserve your seat. Email: firstname.lastname@example.org or Ph: 9780 5600
Born in, and spending his early youth in northern Tasmania, Rob Turner has always loved adventure, tackling and surviving much more than most. Scuba diver, shipwreck finder, charter pilot and chief flying instructor, former world aerobatic spin record holder and international solo sailor are just some of his experiences in a long and exciting life. Now retired and ‘slowing down’ a little, Rob lives in the small seaside town of Dunsborough, near his family. When not indulging in, amongst other things, his love of writing books or poetry, he especially delights in teaching his two youngest grandchildren the joys of snorkelling and exploring with them in the wonders of the underwater world.
