Girl in a boat

From Sarah Outen’s blog:

In 2009 I rowed across the Indian Ocean. Alone: just me and my little boat, Dippers. A journey embodying commitment to life and survival in the elements, my row from Australia to Mauritius was dedicated to the memory of my Dad, Derek, who had died suddenly in 2006. On the way I broke 2 oars,  ate 500 bars of chocolate and still lost 20kg bodyweight.  It took me 124 days and we scooped a few 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.
