A woman from Cornwall has made history after she and three colleagues became the first all-female crew to row the Pacific Ocean.
Laura Penhaul from Redruth arrived in Cairns, Australia early this morning after nine months at sea.
The girl's mammoth journey of more than 9,200 miles began in San Francisco last spring. During the gruelling effort the crew sleep for two hours at a time before putting in a two-hour stint on the oars.
They set off from San Francisco in April. Despite taking three months longer than planned the expedition has set two world records, the women becoming the first all-female team and the first team of four to row the Pacific.
