The May Network Oval Business Club breakfast meet was another busy event in the prestigious Montepelier Club Lounge at the Kia Oval. 

Delegates enjoyed a morning of networking, a delicious continental breakfast and heard from record-breaking explorer and endurance adventurer, Ness Knight.

Ness amazed our guests as she gave details of her next trip as she plans to row across the Pacific Ocean, starting in North America and ending in Australia. Ness explained the many challenges she'll face travelling across one of the most treacherous oceans in the world, on her own, for 6-9 months!  

Ness also spoke of her first ever exploration trip to Bolivia, where she found out the hard way that living in jungle is not an easy task, having fallen ill before having to return home after her partner snapped his arm wrestling a monkey!

However, that didn't put Ness off exploring again, completing many expeditions, and only recently returning from her latest solo trip in Namibia where she cycled across the country's 'forbidden zone' facing various challenging situations, including temperatures of up to 49 degrees celsius and coming across packs of lions.

We thank Ness for joining us at our May meeting, and wish her the best of luck with her trip across the Pacific Ocean
