Brill, it looks like the strong stuff is delayed. So for now I’m still playing safe and keeping South of M. This gives me the best chance of hitting the SE corner – and failing that I have the run of the East coast. Ric’s advice is to point and shoot when the strong stuff does show up.
Have just had massive sugar high by eating entire bag of barley sugar in one sitting. Yum with a capital ‘Y’!! Said bag found tucked away for ’emergencies’. Well, the last day of July, my fourth a la mer, is sad to wave us on into August so I thought that was emergency enough.
We’ve covered Ric’s flights now and he is en route – literally high as a kite in all senses of the word- but if you’re keen to help chip away at my substantial loan repayment (there are lots of noughts involved, though happily interest free) then that would be greatly appreciated and will mean I’ll be selling fewer toes off to medical research when I’m back. I’ve asked Mum to put the bank account details up on the blog. Or a cheque to my home address (see website), payable to Sarah Outen Ltd. Very much appreciated indeed.
Currently in between rowing, interviews and getting things ready for landing, I am being befuzzled by all that has happened and is about to happen. This involves lots of tears and smiles – both happy and sad and excited and nervous. And I’m still conscious that this Final Lap has only just begun and that the most challenging bits of the whole crossing lies ahead.
Signing out from July, over 3,000 nauties from Freo and ever closer to M,

Fiona Sampson – I’ll be back into scgool before you get to the end of your first week -I look forward to it. I’ll bring Dippers back to say hello when she’s landed too.
Remora – Eek! Port Louis would be a nightmare. More chance of land-land under my own steam on E coast. F F boys just called and said it was mammoth round from Gunners Quoin to Port Louis.
Clare S – Do you deliver to Heathrow?! Your chocolate brownies have featured in my dreams often! Folks – a tray of Clare’s brownies auctioned for £90!!
Claire C – Yum….
