OVER AND OUTEN

ATHLETE AND ADVENTURER SARAH OUTEN HAS TRAVELLED OVER 25,000 MILES BUT AS SHE TELLS ALENA DIERICKX, HER EMOTIONAL JOURNEY HAS BEEN JUST AS EPIC
Made it! Sarah Outen completes her round the world trip by kayaking under London’s Tower Bridge in November 2015

In 2013 the athlete and adventurer Sarah Outen, now 30, became the first person to row from Japan to Alaska. She rowed 3,750 nautical miles over 150 days in her seven-metre boat Happy Socks to complete the challenge. In November of this year, she completed a gruelling round the world London-to-London expedition, which she began in 2011 and which has seen her kayak, cycle and row over 25,000 miles, kayaking under Tower Bridge to HMS President on 3 November to complete the challenge. Back in 2013, while rowing solo across the Pacific Ocean, Sarah came out by announcing that she was engaged to be married to girlfriend Lucy – we’re pretty sure it’s the first time any one has popped the question while in a tiny rowing boat, alone in the middle of an ocean!
