Huw Kingston is an adventurer, speaker, entrepreneur, former cafe owner, event director, environmentalist, writer, ski guide, mountain bike guide, tour leader, parliamentary candidate and grandfather. But to most he is best known for his year-long, human-powered circumnavigation of the Mediterranean Sea. Huw sea kayaked, walked, cycled and rowed a boat 13,000 kilometres through 17 countries. This adventure coincided with the 100th anniversary of the Gallipoli landing. During his journey Huw raised funds for the charity Save the Children Australia, becoming their biggest ever individual fundraiser.
