A TALE of ‘The Incredible Journey’, spanning 25,000 miles and four and a half years - will be the last Inspiring People talk in Ayr later this month.
Rower and adventurer Sarah Outen will be the final speaker in the six month long programme by the Royal Scottish Geographical Society.
Sarah will address audiences in Ayr on Wednesday March 29 at 7.30 in Ayr Town Hall.
Sarah will recount to audiences the tale of her treacherous and, at times, seemingly impossible journey to circumnavigate the globe entirely under her own steam. Her goal was to loop the northern hemisphere by rowing boat, bike and kayak over two and a half years, sharing the journey with schools as she journeyed.
From the young Chinese man who joined her on a whim through the Gobi desert, to a mid ocean rescue after a tropical storm, to the remote Alaskan communities in the Aleutians - Sarah’s journey was one of contrasts and change.
Sarah’s story is inspiring as much for its failures as its successes, she is honest about the hardship of exploration, her story is definitely about having a go, failing, having another go, embracing change and of learning when and how to let go.
Hear Sarah’s talk and find inspiration for your own adventure. Sarah will be speaking in Ayr on Wednesday 29th March at 7:30pm in Ayr Town Hall, she will also be signing copies of her latest book, Dare To Do.
Tickets are available at the door and online until midday the day before the talk.
Tickets are free for RSGS members, students and U18s, £8 for Tiso Outdoor Experience cardholders and £10 for visitors.
