Sarah has just been interviewed by ABC Radio and sounded really happy.
A few of her comments;
Northwesterly is picking up. Frustrated at being blown back, wondering wether to launch para anchor or not.
Have been waking up at sunrise to row.
Relaxed about bad weather coming.
Wonderful feeling – (about being alone at sea) all fears, whatever, just go away.
Good fun and exciting!
Just been listening to music, the snow patrol and audio books. Wind and the willows is my favoruite so far!
Cant believe 3 days have already gone!
Sarah is sounding genuinly happy and upbeat and showing all the right signs of being in the right place at the right time, doing what feels right for her. This is reassuring for all of us. A lot goes through your mind in the first few days at sea, especially on such an adventure like the one she is presently living. But Sarah is cool with it. She is really on her way. And she is happy.
Hey Sarah, Sarah here. Best wishes to you, we will be thinking of you. Matt says he may just take you up on your offer of the boat, ha!
Take care and will write again soon. 🙂
Hi Sarah, I caught your interview on the radio today just by chance and was fascinated to discover you and your journey – it sounds amazing! I have just googled you to find your website and am looking forward to checking it often. I live in Freo so I swim in the beautiful Indian Ocean very often! I also work in a public library and am interested to hear of such an unusual use for audio books… great idea. All the best, Emma.
Brilliant to hear the latest! thank you! Still here with you, xx
As promised my first job was to check your blog the highlight of my day, you doing that makes our life so dull.
Take care and as they say row row the boat.
Must get ready for work, don’t think my boss would like to think I was late because of being on the web.
Talk again soon.
Love C & K
Good morning,am just getting ready for college. have a good day/ night.

Good morning from a lovely sunny spring Rutland! Great to hear how you are getting on, the first thing I do is check your blog and hear about life at sea. Looking forward to the next one!
All the best Kitty
Just remenber the longest journey begins with the first step. Good luck from Wales U K

Just heard of your trip and wish you all the best.The only rowing I have done was on a machine,done my back in!
Good Luck and God Bless
Hope those winds stop blowing you back Sarah! Kate x
Just to let you know, you have made the front page of the “Le Matinal” a local paper printed in Mauritius it is in french. For those who want to see it log onto on the left hand side click on “Print Edition” then click on 2009-03-16-LM01UNE.pdf.
Keep up the good work.

No news about the fly! Was starting to get a bit worried there that either there were going to be two world records up for grabs,(first fly across the Indian) or that you wern’t going to get the solo crossing based on his support. Hopefully by now he has buzzed off!
Positive thoughts winging their way to you every waking moment. All the very best, Dom
Scooter Ooter!! You’re on your way! The SJS children were very excited to hear that you had left dry land – EVERY hand in the school went up when Libby asked if anyone knew what Sarah Outen was doing!! I keep looking at the world map in the entrance hall and imagining you out there with the elements – keep going and keep safe. We’re all behind you Kiffy x
Sarah, im loving getting the updates of little sister’s row. Im still findig it amazing that your doing such a great thing. Im so so proud of you and Dad would be so proud too. He will be guiding you all the way!!!! Keep it up and Matt’s right, pictures of fish are the only way of judging, dont go catching sharks to get one over on us!! hehe
Hi!Sarah!I am a Chinese undergraduate and I just know the news about your great challenge from a magazine.In my opinion,it must be another feat in the history of human being.I hope you will eventually achieve your goal and share us your experiences on the ocean.Happiness just comes after difficulties.Good luck and enjoy your trip!I’ll follow you all the way~
Hope you’re feeling strong and determined – but if you’re not, don’t worry. It was about now that I was thinking, OMG, what have I let myself in for?! But you are much more mature and focused than I was. I know you’re going to do just great. It might take a while to shake down, but once you get away from land you’re away and cruising. Or if not cruising, at least away!
with huge respect and best wishes
