IWD 2021 Breakfast – Bundaberg
The Zonta Club of Bundaberg is hosting their annual International Women’s Day Breakfast on Sunday 7 March 2021 at Rowers on the River, Bundaberg. Start time is 7.30am for 8.00am.
The theme for our 2020 IWD breakfast is STEPPING OUT!
Our Guest Speaker is Eleanor Carey.
Eleanor Carey was the first Australian woman to row across the Pacific. She was out there for over 62 days, joining two strangers, English athletes Cazz Lander and Megan Hoskin, 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 from California to Hawaii in. 7.6 metre boat powered by muscle alone. They set not one, but two world records for being the first ever crew of three to make the crossing and the youngest crew of three to row any ocean in the world.
Eleanor shares her experience of stepping into the unknown and the incredible power of consistency under extreme pressure.
It will be a thoroughly entertaining and educational morning with a wonderful speaker, plenty of raffles, prizes, a glass of “sparkling” on arrival and a delicious breakfast.
Come along and celebrate International Women’s Day 2021 at the Zonta Club of Bundaberg’s major fundraising event
