Cas and Jonesy return to the Sydney International Boat Show
by Domenic Genua on 8 Jun 2012
Not being satisfied with Crossing the Ditch in 2008, James Castrission and Justin Jones fondly known as 'Cas and Jonesy' have just returned from completing an amazing walk to the south pole and back - and they will appear at the Sydney International Boat Show to share their experience.

Naming their new journey Crossing the Ice, Cass and Jonesy who still proudly carry the title of Recreational Boating Safety Ambassadors have agreed to return to the Sydney Show to tell their story.
Having completed their epic adventure of Crossing the Ditch in 2008, the Sydney Boat Show audience overwhelmingly embraced the pair to a point where they were invited to return the following year.
This year heralded the conclusion of their second great adventure and having already developed a strong connection with the boating public, they’re ecstatic to be participating at the show and sharing their story of Crossing the Ice. This will occur daily at 2.00 pm from the MyBoatingLife Entertainment Precinct in Hall 3.
James Castrission said 'Jonesy and I are very happy to be returning to the boat show. We have spent a lot of time sharing our stories with the boat show public and we love how boaties have made us part of their family. Our new adventure was so challenging and we can’t wait to tell our story and show everyone what we went through to get home'.
Cas and Jonesy are Boating Safety Ambassadors for NSW Roads and Maritime Services and the Boating Industry Association of NSW. With this title, they have worked hard over the years, particularly with children, to spread the Lifejacket 'Wear-it' safety message.
The show is proud to have NSW Roads and Maritime Services as its principle partner in safety.
The Sydney International Boat Show runs from the second to 6th August. The show opens at 10 am with the halls closing at 8 pm and the marina a couple of hours earlier at 6 pm.
