4. True Grit: The Indian Ocean Row – Tom Kelly


With a 50% success rate, rowing across the Indian ocean is not for the faint hearted.

But Tom Kelly and 3 friends were one of the successful few that managed the 3100 mile journey from Perth to Mauritius…unassisted, with a broken centrepiece, and as rowing novices.

On this episode Rob asks Tom, how do you plan for success? How do you survive such a monumental life task? And what makes someone ‘gritty’ enough to overcome those life obstacles in the way of achieving goals?
