Sarah Outen is on an around the world expedition from London to London which will involve rowing across oceans, cycling across continents and kayaking at sea whilst blogging through her website www.sarahouten.com.
In 2009, Sarah Outen became the first woman to row across the Indian Ocean. She spent four months rowing solo and was the youngest woman to row any ocean. The book about her journey, A Dip In The Ocean, is available from Summersdale.

Tim Moss, The Next Challenge
I was the Logistics Manager for the first phase of this expedition. I began planning the journey with Sarah twelve months before departure and continued to support her until she reached Japan at the end of 2011.
If you would like help with an expedition of your own, whether it’s a large-scale effort like Sarah’s or just a small, simple initiative then please see my Services page.
Pacific Ocean Rescue
In June 2012, 26 days into Sarah Outen’s Pacific Ocean row, her boat Dippers was hit by the Tropical Storm Mawar and she was forced to call the Japanese authorities for a rescue. You can read about the gruelling encounter here. She is planning a second attempt in 2013.
