A Dip in the Ocean: Rowing Solo Across the Indian

Sarah Outen

Four-thousand miles of unpredictable ocean, 500 chocolate bars, 124 days of actual exertion, three Guinness international files, and one fabulous journey


On April 1, 2009, courageous 23-year-old Sarah Outen launched into an formidable solo voyage around the Indian Ocean in her rowing boat, Dippers. Powered via the grief of the surprising lack of her father and the decision to reside lifestyles to the fullest, Sarah and her tiny boat effectively negotiated wild ocean storms, unforeseen encounters with whales, and the continual hazard of being capsized by way of passing box ships. alongside the way in which she broke oars, ate 500 chocolate bars, and misplaced 20 kg of body weight sooner than arriving in Mauritius. She turned the 1st girl and the youngest individual to row solo around the Indian Ocean. Life-affirming, humorous, and poignant, Sarah's salty story of braveness and persistence will encourage the style of event in everyone.
