Sarah Outen

Adventurer By Land and Sea, Author and Speaker

“I love being the engine to where I’m where trying to get to”

Sarah’s expedition-ing career started in her early twenties when, following the sudden death of her father, she prepared to row solo across the Indian Ocean in his memory, while raising money for charity.

At 24, after 124 days alone at sea rowing from Australia to Mauritius, Sarah became the first woman and youngest person ever to row solo across the Indian Ocean. She was awarded an MBE for this journey.

The last decade has focussed on Sarah's journeys and storytelling, encouraging people outside and supporting a number of youth and health charities. Sarah has written two books on her journies, ‘A Dip in the Ocean’ and ‘Dare to Do’.

Home from long-term solo wandering now, Sarah is married to Lucy and working on new journeys of a different kind.
