    hiya sarah,you are so right,we should put your excellent team nearer the front of our thoughts,they are a big part of this startling endeavour you are spearheading,you sound so much brighter now,i really feel for you being cooped up but your resilience,pluck and determination is a real example to those of us with “first world problems”-this was amplified for me at the funeral of an acquaintance yesterday,a retired roadsweeper and cook whose dry wit,sarcasm and playful pranks endeared him to all who crossed his path,the service was standing room only and everyone agreed we were the better for knowing him,i like being around more adventurous,cleveverer,braver people,you get a triple top score for that and thanks for letting us be a little part of your journey,happy trails,you got this!


    Ars est celare artem: the genius of your true status.

    crazy = extremely enthusiastic – what’s not to like? Does anyone know any serious adventurer that is not Extremely Enthusiastic…..guess not so that makes you darn near normal Sarah. Cannot start to imagine myself in your place just know that you are a bright star shining out from behind the clouds of mediocrity – go build a sail, harness a dolphin sing to the winds we all know that what you are achieving is totally remarkable and certain to be making positive history for women. Smell that….it’s a breath of Fresh Air 🙂

  4. Good rowing and keep on going

    Hi Sarah,
    I’ve been following your journey from the very beginning of L2L adventure and checking on your status almost daily. You are amazing and I hope the weather is changing soon for the better and you get home safely. My kids are looking up to you and one of them is saying that he is too going to row the ocean when he grows up 🙂

    Best wishes to you!

      What a lovely message to hear your kids are inspired, best of luck to your young lad with the ocean dream. Whatever horizons they choose, I wish them well. Sarah

    Hello Sarah………I love your positive spirit and determination to complete your journey. I can’t imagine being cooped up in your little cabin all day and being tossed around by those strong winds. You are a true champion and have already won the race.



    In response to the Tweet, I suppose I am a supporter and am definitely at Bardon as usual.
    Just finished some German and about to do some more.
    Bardon Hill this afternoon or visiting friends in need, then Maths later.
    Tomorrow Bardon again, more German, swimming and more Maths.
    Like you I am currently going round in circles, but feel that the endorsement of your experience gives value to my parochial efforts.
    Thank you very much Sarah.

    Sarah, Those of us in our little rowing class at Chatham Health & Swim class remember you fondly. We are trying to catch up (tallying our meters rowed) so we can keep up with you on your journey. We worry, delight and admire your efforts and wish you clear skies and a wind at your stern…very, very soon.

    Our love and encouragement follow you,

  9. Caroline Lane says:

    Thinking of you and following your progress every day since learning of your adventure from Chatham on Cape Cod back in May. Stay safe and keep communicating. You are so brave.

  10. Hi Sarah,
    Wishing you all the best for a change in the weather and a speedy return to home……. you are incredible, so keep positive and call on all of your angel guides to come to your aid and to help you – best of luck with the sail – just think of the extra accolaides you will get for doing the journey without a rudder !!!! Sending you positive energy.

    keep on going, you have great enthusiasm

    They say nothing lasts forever – whether good or bad…

    That said, I hope you will soon (very, very soon!) see the end of the unhelpful weather systems that seem bent on pushing you backwards.

    If wishes were actions, you’d already be home! Hang in, Sarah!

    Dear Sarah –

    Have been following you since attending a presentation by Justine last March. We are so, so sorry for this crummy turn of events – and we are sorry for the pain you must have experienced watching Happy Socks after you were on board your rescue ship. We send you prayers, positive energy, and please know you have the admiration of followers worldwide. God bless.
