An adventurer is back in training for a second attempt at a round-the-world challenge using manpower alone.

Sarah Outen, 27, from Oakham, had to cut short her attempt to cycle, row and kayak around the world in June when her boat capsized in the Pacific Ocean in the middle of a storm.

The former Stamford High School pupil returned home to Rutland and has been training hard to try again from where she left off, starting next year.

On her blog at she wrote: “Training for the ocean next year started pretty soon after I got back in June, as much for the need to focus my mind and start shedding the ‘ocean weight’ I had put on for this year’s row.

“My physical preparation is being masterminded by the brilliant team at Core Cambridge, a friendly crew of sports physios and strength and conditioning coaches.”

Sarah is also training with the inspire2tri triathlon team from Manton.

She added: “After so much of my expedition and training happens in solitude it is lots of fun and very motivational to be leaping about with others.”
