Oakham adventurer Sarah Outen has resumed her challenge to circumnavigate the globe using manpower alone.

Sarah, 28, is just over half way through her journey London2London: Via the World after completing her 3,750 mile row across the North Pacific, from Japan to Alaska, in September last year.

She took a break over Christmas but started again today (Wednesday) on the next stage - a 1,400 mile kayak trip across the Aleutian Islands to mainland Alaska with team mate Justine Curgenven.

Prior to setting off, Sarah tweeted: “Kayaks landed safely in Anchorage and @cackletv (Justine) safely at my house. Double phew! Final packing then psych session with Dr Briony Nicholls.”

The onward journey involves cycling to the Canadian East Coast and rowing home across the North Atlantic in 2015.

Sarah is fundraising for charities along the way, as well as sharing stories and visiting schools to inspire others to take on their own challenges.

During the break, Sarah was made ambassador of charity Inspire+, which encourages young people to get involved in sports and volunteering.
