After 55 days at sea a team of four rowers will complete the Trans Tasman row when Team Gallagher Trans-Tasman Rowing Challenge are expected at pass under the Auckland Harbour Bridge.

The team will have completed the first ever row from the Sydney Harbour Bridge to the Auckland Harbour Bridge

The release from the team is as follows:

As long as the weather doesn’t do a freaky turn it’s looking more and more likely that Team Gallagher will finish under the Auckland Harbour Bridge late afternoon tomorrow.

It would be terrific if you could contact all your friends, family and work colleagues to inform them of the crew's impending arrival.

It would be wonderful to see a flotilla of boats escorting them up the harbour and throngs of people to meet them near the tilting bridge at end of the Halsey Street extension.

Silo Night markets will also be running tomorrow from 5pm at the Silo area in Wynyard Quarter and a movie will screen free outside at 9pm - the perfect way to end the night!
