1 APRIL 2011 Rower and adventurer Sarah Outen set off in her kayak from Tower Bridge for France. Her aim was simple: to circle the globe entirely under her own steam – cycling, kayaking and rowing. A year later, Sarah was plucked from the Pacific Ocean after tropical storm Mawar, her boat broken, her spirit even more so. But that wasn’t the end. Giving up was not an option….Sarah visits the Festival to talk about picking herself up after a fall, and finishing what she set out to do.
