Col is progressing his journey down the Murray, passing through his first lock on the way at Torrumbarry.

According to the map Col has 25 more locks and weirs to go! And if you thought that he had a pleasant journey? Col spent a night at Nyah then onto Tooleybuc. Unfortunately his rudder has broken, grounding on the shallow sections with logs and debris. Along the way he met with a group of Swan Hill Rotarians, some of whom donated money to his appeal. He has passed the 1,000km point with about 1,300 to go!

This man is a true inspiration! If you wish to buy a raffle ticket to support Col’s fundraising, go to
