Cornishwoman, Laura Penhaul, led the first all-women crew to row across the Pacific Ocean.

In April 2015, the Coxless Crew set off from San Francisco and, rowing via Hawaii and Samoa, reached Cairns  nine months later, an epic and a two record setting voyage of over 9200 miles.  Laura is the UK’s lead physiotherapist for Paralympic Athletics.


"I believe in highlighting to anyone and everyone, that we need to recognise our own abilities and not our limitations. Turn To Starboard epitomises this by creating a platform for injured service personnel to be tested and pushed in an environment where they can also learn new skills, showing everyone and themselves what their abilities are over and above their disabilities. Turn To Starboard is a great charity that I am proud to be a part of and to top it off, Cornwall is its home! "
