Sarah is going to be interviewed on BBC radio 2 with Radcliffe and Maconie tonight at approximately 9pm. This will be your first chance to hear from her live from the Indian Ocean. She has requested Queen – don’t stop me know, very fitting for the girl that will let nothing stand in her way. As Ricardo has said she has been feeling a bit sick the last couple of days so hopefully she will be well enough for the interview. Everyone show your support and tune in.

Is that 9pm GMT or what time zone?
Have set my alarm for 9 o’clock so i make sure i will be listening and dont forget! do hope you will be feeling well soon and have adjusted more to life at sea. Just heard an unrelated report from Rutland on radio so it made me think of my favourite ocean rower!! Calm sea wishes, xxx

Thank You, for telling.

Hi Sarah, watching your progress keenly. That current can be a bugger but it is only a little deviation in the big picture. Love to Wilson.
After listening to you, Sarah and watching a programme on the oceans and its whales, I nearly feel that I am out there with you. I hope the stars are guiding you on your way, as they are shining brightly here tonight.
We will report on your progress to the children, who heard about the quokkas from your postcard.
Keep in fine fettle.
Libby and Philip
Dear Sarah, it came up at committee here at the Royal Mega Club and Sailing, that you were undertaking an expedition of some note. Jolly good stuff that – lot of chaps have gone a bit soft in these modern times. (too much TV and quick food I think, bad for the constitution) Anyhow, thought you’d like to know committee have opened a spot at the end of the Club jetty and set up a membership for when you return.(Don’t know how Upton-Smyth is going to take it – he’ll have to move his tender to the works dock. But don’t you worry about that.)
Jolly good then,

I heard you on the radio just now and wanted to come and wish you well. I shall follow your progress and make a donation tomorrow. All the best x
Sarah, Your doing fantastic. Sadly my computer wont let me listen to your inteview. Perks of being in America I guess. Keep it up girl, also I love yor choice of song. Dad would have been tapping his feet to it, im sure
Keep it up girl
You big brother xxxxxx
I was just driving home from taking the Collision Regs part of my Yachtmasters exam when i turned on R2 and heard you speaking. How uncanny is that! It made me feel all emotional; bringing back memories of meeting you at the Personal Everest events, and how you were a part of inspiring me to take up sailing more seriously. I’m loving it with all my heart…..keep the passion going!:)
p.s. i was singing that song all day sunday when i sailed in The Exmoor Beastie (a 3hr pursuit race at Wimbleball Lake)! thats funny too! 🙂
Well done Sarah, you are doing really well and we loved meeting you at RPYC last week.
The fundemental in swimming out of a rip, or rowing out of a current is to row across it, not be tempted into trying to row against it.
Don’t worry about the southing, keep rowing west only, you have 100 days to make up the North again.
Just remember the big plus of our lovely current … it is beautifully warm..maybe 23Deg C ..enjoy!
Best wishes from us all.
Dear Sarah, you are an inspiration for us all, male or female. You must not only be extremely physically fit, but mentally fit as well to undergo this adventure. Good luck to you and am following your tracker and blog daily. Sincerly Val Hempel, NSW, Australia.
Plenty of encouragement about here. If escaping out West is escaping you may just be a possible to head East to get out of current and tackle it at a more Northerly point where its narrower.Remember,you know best whats best for you
Great interview, you sound really positive. With the help of the wonderfull Mr Faux hope to get your interview wizzing round on the interactive boards in school. God Speede
keep going Sarah remember NEVER give up. You inspire me so muchhhhhhhhhhh
I have just found Sarah’s interview on the BBC iPlayer website.

My 6 year old son and I are following your progress and are full of awe. Good luck, stay calm and be strong – what an incredible challenge! You’re amazing x
