Frustration for team rowing across the Tasman

7:35 am on 22 December 2011

Frustration for the 4-man New Zealand crew attempting to row across the Tasman.

Bad weather has blown Team Gallagher back over the exact same spot this morning for the third time.

25 days into the row bad weather has meant the crew has spent ten of those days under sea anchor and they've been blown further north than planned.

Team Gallagher aim to be the first New Zealand team to row from Sydney to Auckland using the iconic harbour bridges as their start and finish lines.

They are also raising money to help build the world's biggest man made coral reef in Borneo.
