A Cornish woman who has praised her home county for the support they have given her as she completed the epic 9,200 mile journey across the Pacific.
Speaking to ITV West Country via Skype Laura Penhaul said even though those from Cornwall may be seen as "country bumpkins", the world is their oyster and you can achieve anything.
The emotional rower said she couldn't thank her supporters enough, and praised her friends and family who had been "there for me through thick and thin".
The Coxless Crew departed from under the Golden Gate Bridge in their pink 29ft boat Doris in April last year, rowing more than 9,200 miles from San Francisco to Australia.
Laura said she was really overwhelmed by the feat, and couldn't quite comprehend what the team had achieved.
She said the wildlife had been a huge highlight of her time at sea - where she caught sight of whales, sea turtles and birds.
When asked what it felt like being back on dry land after nine months at sea, Laura said it was "what I have dreamed of".
She said the team had faced many challenges both before, and during the huge endurance event.
Laura told us she was done with challenges for a little while, and was now concentrating on her day job and getting Britain's paralympic athletes to Rio.
And as for ever getting in a boat again, Laura says she will, as long as it has an engine!
