Sarah Outen


What if you could circle the earth on your own power? 


Just home from a five-year 25,000 mile journey looping the planet by pedal and paddle, cycling across Europe, Asia, and North America, rowing and kayaking across the North Pacific and most of the North Atlantic, 30-year-old British adventurer Sarah Outen is an incredible inspiration. She is the author of A Dip in the Ocean, a book about her record-breaking solo row across the Indian Ocean in 2009. Sarah's expeditions have earned various honors--multiple Guinness World records, Order of the British Empire, and, in 2016, she was awarded the title of British Adventurer of the Year and an ESPN Newton Award. Her forthcoming book, Dare to Do, is the story of her inner and outer journeys and will be published in November 2016.
