Have your say

AN ADVENTURER is planning a second round the world challenge.

Former Stamford High School pupil Sarah Outen, 27, from Oakham, had to cut her attempt to kayak, row and cycle around the world short in June when her boat, Gulliver, capsized in the Pacific Ocean.

This week she revealed she has bought another boat from Global Boatworks, the firm that made Gulliver, called Socks.

On her blog,, she said: “It will be sweet and special to take her out there, somehow fitting that we will finish off the journey Gulliver and I set out on.”
