The 'Power of Commitment' enabled Tony Mowbray to become the fastest Australian to sail solo, non-stop and unassisted around the world. This 181-day, record-breaking adventure required total focus and unswerving self-belief. Two years earlier, Tony and his crew on board his yacht 'Solo Globe Challenger' were part of the 1998 Sydney to Hobart yacht race, which encountered the worst race-conditions in it's 54 year history.
Little did he know that within 24 hours of the start, he and his crew would be fighting a 15-hour battle of life and death through 160km/hr cyclonic winds and surfing down a 60 foot wave upside down after a monumental knock down.
Against all odds, Tony survived, but his dream of sailing around the world was shattered, his boat was a wreck and he was severely traumatised. Four months later he was back to his commitment to sail the round world challenge. In January 2004 Tony completed another voyage to Antarctica where he and his crew of four visited Commonwealth Bay and Mawson's Hut. Again surviving some serious conditions and knock downs.
