Oh dear Sarah –
I am sure I am not the only one thinking how we would really like you to be rowing and not stuck in that cabin but we know this is what the ocean is all about … it’s great to hear you are keeping busy mentally and that you can reflect on 2009 which was inspiring and the experience of that very powerful to you in this row now!!
So great though that you can speak through the podcasts which I don’t think you did so much then – and we can get to hear your feelings daily and clearly through your voice which is the best.
Take care and may those waves be kind to you and Happy Socks today.

Don’t wait for fear to go away. It won’t.
Just tell it, in no uncertain terms, that it can only have a small piece of you.
Make the wonder of your adventure….fill up the rest.
Love and courage, Sarah.

Find a way to enjoy the ride. You are a very brave soul to endure six months solo at sea! Like John Lennon said we all are playing those mind games to get us through, Godspeed Sarah.
