Today, we were very lucky to have been visited by British athlete and adventurer Sarah Outen MBE. Amongst many other records, Sarah was the first and the youngest woman to row solo across the Indian Ocean and also the Pacific Ocean from Japan to Alaska. On 3rd November 2015, she returned to London having travelled around the world under her own power (by rowing boat, kayak and bicycle). Sarah showed us video, photographs and stories of her solo adventure around the world. The children also had the opportunity to ask her questions about her adventures, her preparation and her determination and courage.
Sarah will be presenting an extended speech at Walton Girls High School in Grantham at 6:30 p.m. on Monday 29th February - £5 tickets are sold on the door at the High School.
