Sarah’s expeditioning career started in her early twenties when, following the death of her father, she readied herself to tackle an ocean row to raise money for Arthritis charities in his name.
And at the age of just 24, Sarah spent 124 days alone at sea rowing from Australia to Mauritius to become the first woman, and youngest person ever, to row solo across the Indian Ocean.
In her film 'Home', Sarah documents her London 2 London: Via the World expedition, a four-year odyssey which saw her travel for over 20,000 miles around the world.
Woven from hundreds of hours of filmed footage from the expedition, Home intimately and unflinchingly captures Sarah’s journeys: the kindness of strangers, the wonders of the wild, the savagery of the elements, the near-death experiences, the demons of her emotional trauma and PTSD, and her love for her wife Lucy.
Following the screening, Sarah will be taking questions from the audience. There will also be a book stand where she will be selling and signing her books. This event will take place within the Chancellors' building (Lecture theatre 2.6)
