Sarah’s expeditioning career started in her early twenties when, following the death of her father, she readied herself to tackle an ocean row to raise money for Arthritis charities in his name. And at the age of just 24 Sarah spent 124 days alone at sea rowing from Australia to Mauritius to become the first woman and youngest person ever to row solo across the Indian Ocean.

The Indian row fuelled Sarah’s love of adventure. And it was while out on the ocean that she dreamt up an even more ambitious expedition, London2London: Via the World – a journey that would see her row, cycle and kayak from London all the way around the northern hemisphere back to London again. Her aim was to raise money for her chosen charities, inspire people to embrace adventure and to ultimately return home safe and well.
It was to be an epic 25,000-mile odyssey that took her a grueling 4.5 years to complete. Sarah nearly lost her life on more than one occasion and the mental and physical battles took everything she had to overcome.
