Catching Up With Lindsay Warner’s Round Trips


One week ago today, our WCJ Time Machine post of the day took us back to Feb 17, 2020, when we took a look at Australia’s Lindsay Warner as he made his plans to become the first person to circumnavigate around the entire Australian continent on a solo journey aboard a Kawasaki JetSki. The 20,000 kilometer proposed trip, if he completed it, would have put him in the record books in the longest open water travel category. 

Warner, then 63, was after more than records, though – he was after attention – the purpose behind his journey was to raise awareness for Men’s health issues and raise $100,000 for the cause. 

In September, 2021, The Watercraft Journal reported the Warner had completed his journey, successfully circumnavigated Australia – an adventure of more than 9,000 miles – and a few crocodiles. 

Of course, after posting our Time Machine look back at the start of his Australian around-the-island solo trip, I couldn’t help but head to Google to find out what Warner has been up to lately.

He didn’t disappoint. 

As reported by Watercraft Zone, on Jan. 14 of last year, Warner set out to solo-circle New Zealand to set another record and earn more attention, awareness and funds for Men’s health issues – using the same 2017 Kawasaki Ultra LX that made the lap round Australia.  And at the end of February last year, Kawasaki announced that Warner had again achieved his goal, taking 9 days on the water to lap the South Island and another 12 days on the water to lap the North Island – facing not only storms, but cyclones along the way. 

Counting Warner’s earlier circumnavigation of Tasmania in 2019, Warner has now completed a true trifecta – the hattrick of solo adventuring.

And we can’t wait to see what he’s up to next.
