WELCOME to benturner.com.au the home to Ben Turner’s Pacific Quest where you can read about Ben’s Quest to help cure Cystic Fibrosis by rowing across the Pacific Ocean in 2012! Here you can read up to date blogs about what Ben is doing and his progress to making his dream become a reality!
Ben is planning to complete an East – West crossing of the Pacific Ocean in a customised ocean rowing boat from Lima, Peru aiming for Sydney, Australia taking him across more than 13,000km of water and taking approximately 270+ days to complete! If successful with the row Ben will become the first Australian and youngest person to cross the Pacific Ocean solo, non-stop and unassisted.
If you know Ben though, you’ll know that records don’t mean a whole lot to him. Ben is rowing to raise money and awareness for Cystic Fibrosis which is the most common life threatening, recessive genetic condition affecting Australian children. Together we can find a cure!
