Listen to my latest phonecast
Courage and bravery being shown that the normal man in the street such as myself finds difficult to get my head round.
Like countless others, I look forward to reading news of your safe return to dry land.
Speechless. You are one brave soldier, Sarah! I think my brains would have burst into flaming panic had I been in your shoes. Setbacks are not failures, but only obstacles in our path. Staying tuned and glad you are soon to be safe and dry.
Glad you’re safe – that’s the most important part. Bet Gulliver will be fine until conditions improve and allow for rescue.
I second that Mark. Sarah is a true adventurer. To have the mental and physical strength to get through such an ordeal, and then to convey it so articulately to the rest of us, amazing.
We’re all glad you are still in one piece. Rest up.
You sound exhausted Sarah – not surprisingly – but wonderful to hear how strong & positive you can still be in such frightening conditions. Good luck with the recovery & good luck to poor Gulliver. I hope he will be recovered safely & fit enough to continue with your amazing journey. Thinking if you. x
Well done you for making it through. I recall a similar North Atlantic storm. Good choice. Great to hear your voice too. Sad to have to leave Gulliver out there. Hope the pick-up is ok.
Even in this situation you are still keeping us up to date, you are just so courageous in everything you do. Good to hear the coastguard should be with you eralier than first thought. Will be good to hear when you are back safely and also Gulliver even though he may have to wauit a little longer.
Take care and enjoy your pancakes.

And my love and good wishes too. And it’s not the end of the story. Gulliver is doing what he was made for, but it’s not so great for a human bean! You sound battered but not a jelly bean. Bad joke, but they’re the only sort I can do (as I’m sure you know!) Hope Gulliver (after a brave bit of time at sea without you) and you come back safe to land soon. We’ll join you for pancakes as soon as we know you are safe! It’s a bit of an extreme way of getting back to grapes. Pam xxx
Such a relief to hear your voice and to read that you are now safely on board with the coastguard. I know you have been through a terrifying experience, and hope that you take time to rest and recover when you’re back on land. Here’s hoping that Gulliver can be rescued soonish, too.
Sending lots of love and hugs xxxx
Gulliver is …’is made weak by time, and fate, but strong in will to strive, to seek, to find, and to yield.’ Tennyson …. He will be riding out the sea forces waiting for rescue and a chance to prove once again, his purpose in life….!
I really do not know what to say Sarah. Must be so dissapointing for you. But thankyou for keeping us up to date. Think firmly when you arrive back in Japan. If you are prepared to go on you will be a very brave lass. I,myself would say that I would think twice. The pacific can be unkind and I do not wish you to risk your life again. You have done so well but your safety is what you have to think about. Do not think that you have failed. You have not. What you have achieved will always be remembered for years to come. God Bless you Sarah And rest up now. Peter.Nottingham.
So sorry that events have turned out this way. I am so impressed with what you have done on your incredible journey. I was looking forward to seeing you pass by on your cycling leg in Canada. Thank God you are safe. All the best
Sad end to your adventure. Thank goodness for the Japanese Coast Guard. We really enjoyed sharing your trip.
You are an inspiration. Nature is the ultimate force to be reckoned with. We are pawns in its game. You’ve not done too badly in this episode , but the match isn’t over. Just make sure you work out what part of the game you want to re-enter…
Good Luck !
Just reading about your journey and listened to your last two pod casts. What an adventure, and personal retreat you have embarked on, confronting yourself and sharing all that you ‘ve encountered. Bravo- as an artist, educator and life- long seeker I am so inspired by your commitment to self, others, and creativity! Wonderful to know about your visionary achievement,
