Brit woman prepares to row solo across Pacific Ocean

London, Wed, 18 Apr 2012 ANI

London, Apr 18 (ANI): Sarah Outen, who is no stranger to adventure, will be on her own once she rows out across the Pacific from a small port in Japan this week until she reaches Canada.

Outen's solo voyage in a rowboat packed with the latest gadgetry is probably the most challenging leg in her ambitious project to circle the globe by boat and bike.

"The distance is really huge," the Telegraph quoted her as saying.

The 26-year-old adventurer became the first woman to row solo across the Indian Ocean in 2009.

Outen left Britain on April 1 last year on a 30-month expedition under the title London2London: Via the World, which saw her kayak to Europe, cycle across Eurasia then get back in her kayak to Japan.

When she sets out from Choshi, east of Tokyo, she will be taking with her everything she needs for the next six or seven months - food, power generating equipment, a satellite phone, navigation computers and a desalinator to make drinking water from the sea.

There will be just one thing missing from the boat: a driving force.

"I am the engine," she said.

At the end of the 4,500 nautical mile journey, and as Vancouver's trees shed their leaves, she'll get back on her bike, bound for North America's east coast. (ANI)
