Whirlwinding through October

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again – this land lark is a bit crazy at times. It has been a busy time of late…

The past week has been fairly hectic, but full of lots of good things: Like attending the Women of the Year Lunch in London and meeting some incredible women;  yomping up High Pike in the Lake District on my three days of ‘resting’; the ocean party and a day at St Edward’s School yesterday. Talks are being booked up and all is good, though I’m not quite sure when I’ll get chance to sit down and write this book!

Post ocean party

Huge oceanic sized thank you to the staff and management of Brook Hotels for hosting such a wonderful ocean party for me and a veritable crew of Tweedles at the Whipper Inn at the weekend – my only regret is being too busy talking to folks that the delicious buffet almost completely passed me by. It was a feast fit for Neptune himself – really super delicious.

Talks, talks , talks

Just waiting for the final totals for Arthritis Care from the talk at St Edward’s School yesterday in Oxford, but it’s looking great. My thanks to everyone for coming along, laughing in all the right places and for the folks of St Edward’s for looking after me during the day. I enjoyed it, so I hope you did, too.

Don’t forget, if you would like to book me for a talk to your school, club, business or even breakfast meetings (!) then please wing me an email and we can hook up for some tales from the sea.

Until the next time,

PS Team polo shirts selling like hot cakes and I strongly advise some speedy ordering if you would like to join the team. 100% cotton polo with neat logo. Free delivery worldwide. Click here

PPS Your very own piece of ocean rowing scrawl/kit. I have an idea: The writing in my cabin and all over my boat, might make cool pictures. And the various bits of ocean kit might make an interesting display for an office or school or gallery.  Suggestions on whether folk think it might be viable for me to photograph the messages and make some prints or on whether some sort of online auction of ocean kit might be a goer, would be much appreciated.

    We were priveldged to attend the talk in Oxford and what a star we had to present it. It was a wonderful evening, so good so see the real Sarah back safely from her adventure and sharing her knowledge and humour with everyone. The added pleasure of meeting Ricardo who did those wonderful blogs in the beginning was a bonus.

    Roll on when the book will be out, have got to wait patiently.

    Bestw ishes for now

    Hi Sarah,
    Maybe you could enter Dippers for the Turner prize …
    Seriously though I’ve no real ideas to offer. Sorry…
    I love the polo shirt though and have ordered more!
    Are you doing any more public talks in the South at all?
    Good luck with the writing,
    Steve

    No further public talks arranged down South just yet – though feel free to pass my details on to arts centres/schools etc and suggest that they hire me for a public lecture!
