Dare to Do – due out June 2016
Just home from a five-year 25,000 mile journey looping the planet by pedal and paddle, cycling across Europe, Asia, and North America, rowing and kayaking across the North Pacific and most of the North Atlantic, Sarah Outen is an incredible adventurer and an inspiration. She’s met with devastating catastrophe (losing her rowing boat Gulliver after a tropical storm in the Pacific and Happy Socks before a hurricane hit her on the Atlantic), motivated people she met to do amazing things, and encountered unbelievable beauty in the natural world. This is the story of her adventure and inner journey, and also a call to action, to redefine your own boundaries, to be courageous, and to dare to do.

‘On 1 April 2009, twenty-three-year-old Sarah Outen embarked on an ambitious solo voyage across the Indian Ocean in her rowing boat, Dippers. Powered by the grief of the sudden loss of her father and the determination to live life to the full, Sarah and her tiny boat successfully negotiated wild ocean storms, unexpected encounters with whales and the continuous threat of being capsized by passing container ships.
Along the way she broke two oars and lost 20 kg of bodyweight before arriving in Mauritius. She became the first woman and the youngest person to row solo across the Indian Ocean. Life-affirming, funny and poignant, Sarah’s salty tale of courage and endurance will inspire the taste of adventure in everyone.’
