World Record Breaking Rower Elenor Carey

All this while keeping her business, The Generator Bundaberg, going at home. Battling hurricanes, extreme seasickness and sleep deprivation, the Pacific Terrific team rowed 4000km across the Pacific Ocean. They set not one, but two world records. Eleanor shares her experience of stepping into the unknown and the incredible power of consistency under extreme pressure.
