Yesterday, a team of women arrived in Australia, ending their 8,446 mile unsupported journey of rowing across the Pacific Ocean in a 29 foot rowing boat from America to Australia. This journey began in April 2015 and has never been done before by an all-female crew. Their vision was to inspire others to reach their own potential and support women that have had to face extreme adversity. Their goal was to raise money for Walking with the Wounded and Breast Cancer Care survivors.
The journey consisted of 6 core values: Strength, Perseverance, Integrity, Resilience, Inspiration and Trust (SPIRIT). Sir Ranulph Fiennes, an ambassador to this journey, stated: “Always during a journey into the unknown there are moments when we want to turn back, when we lose sight of our direction and even our purpose.” These women were determined to achieve their goal, did not let anything get in their way and overcame a huge mental and physical undertaking.
