About Elenor Carey: 
Elenor spent over 62 days on the seas, joining two strangers, at the eleventh hour to compete in the 2018 Great Pacific Race after a crew member dropped out. All this while keeping her business, The Generator Bundaberg, going at home. Battling hurricanes, extreme sea sickness 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.
