Sarah Outen – A Dip in the Ocean
In 2009 Sarah rowed across the Indian Ocean, Alone. On the way Sarah broke 2 oars, ate 500 bars of chocolate and still lost 20kg bodyweight. The journey took 124 days and scooped three Guinness World Records along the way: first woman & youngest person to solo the Indian; youngest woman to solo any ocean. It was raw and elemental – just as adventure should be. Sarah’s first book ‘A Dip in the Ocean‘ will be published in February 2011 by Summersdale.
Sarah is due to start her next expedition ‘London2London:Via the World’ on April 1st 2011, from Tower Bridge, London. Click here to find out more.
