Weather hinders adventurer Sarah Outen’s progress

Bad weather has hindered adventurer Sarah Outen’s preparations as she attempts to restart her world expedition.

Sarah, 27, of Oakham, has challenged herself to circumnavigate the globe from Japan to London, and placed her boat, named Happy Socks, in which she will row across the Pacific Ocean, into the ocean on Saturday.

But her preparations have been hit by storms and an inspection by customs officers was called off this week. To follow Sarah’s progress, visit her blog at www.sarahouten.com/blog
