Luckington mum-of-two Purusha Gordon has rowed her way into the Guiness Book of Records.

She is in a four woman crew which has rowed 2,400 miles from San Francisco to Hawaii.

They have done it in a time of 35 days, 14 hours and 32 minutes. They also become the first all British four to complete the Great Pacific Race.

For P (Purusha), mum of two young boys Harry (8) and Alfie (7) this was more than just a record:

“Achieving the record was something I had hung my hat on for a while as a definition of success. Halfway through the row, I realised the record was just a small part of it.

"To cross an ocean by human power alone and to cross waters never chartered before, at times at the mercy of Mother Nature, was a privilege and the most incredible adventure of a lifetime.

"Whilst the certificate will hang on the wall, it’s the experience, stories and learnings that will continue to shape me for the better. I hope, I can inspire other mums and women out there to be brave, say yes and believe they can too.”

One of the toughest endurance challenges on earth, the Ocean Sheroes, Bella Collins, Purusha Gordon, Mary Sutherland and Lily Lower have been pushed to their limits, rowing 2 hours on 2 hours off, 24/7 in brutal conditions of 30ft waves and gusts of wind reaching 47mph.

Despite this they smashed the previous world record of 50 days, 8 hours and 14 minutes by 14 days.

Since its launch in 2014, only 22 teams have ever completed the Great Pacific Race. To put this in perspective, over 4,000 people have climbed Mt Everest, 1,604 have wintered in the South Pole and 566 people have been to space.

Lily Lower said: “Whilst the nightshifts were super tough when the waves were hitting us from all angles in the pitch black, the incredible sunsets and moonrise and surfing down the waves made up for it.”

Bella Collins commented: “It’s an experience that bonds us beyond anything else! No plans for another adventure... I think we need to rest and recover now!”

When asked what the secret of the team success was, Mary Sutherland said: “Resilience and goal focused is key, along with knowing your teams capabilities and how hard you can push them. These ladies didn’t disappoint. We spent a lot of time learning each other’s motivations, personal goals and personalities are important living in such close quarters and intense conditions. Throw in a general ‘get it done’ attitude and you have a recipe for great things.”

The Ocean Sheroes are on a mission to raise £60,000 for the Seabin Project to support their work for cleaner oceans.

The Seabin 6.0 is a revolution in ocean cleaning technology, helping to create cleaner oceans with healthier marine life.
