British adventurer Sarah Outen described herself as 'an ocean girl at heart'
A British adventurer has begun her second attempt to become the first person to row solo from Japan to Canada.
Enter HAPPY SOCKS (looks like the same old design which needs improvement...)
Self-right test photo - sure would like to see the video
The boat is designed to self-right in the event of capsize. So long as hatches are closed and weight is stowed correctly, she will pop round very swiftly.
The attempt is part of the 27-year-old's wider London2London: Via the World expedition, which will see her row, cycle and kayak a continuous loop of the planet.
WHAT DO YOU SEE ALARMING IN THIS PHOTO? DIMINISHED FREEBOARD - HELLO EXPEDITION ADVISORS - SARA NEEDS YOUR HELP - THIS KAYAK HAS LOST ITS SEAKEEPING ABILITY - OVER LOADED? - MANY BOATS SINK BECAUSE WATER ENTERS WITHOUT DETECTION UNTIL THERE IS A SECONDARY FAILURE WHICH PREVENTS A GOOD & TIMELY RESPONSE.
I STRONGLY RECOMMEND USING SOCIAL MEDIA (WEBSITES, BLOGS, TWITTER, FACEBOOK) AS PROJECT ADVISORS - POST EVERY PLANNED STEP ALONG THE WAY SO YOUR SOCIAL MEDIA FRIENDS CAN OFFER SUGGESTIONS OR ALERT YOU TO CRITICAL ELEMENTS REQUIRING REVISION.
DOES YOUR WEBSITE, BLOG ETC ALLOW FOLLOWERS TO EASILY POST A PUBLIC COMMENT OR EMAIL YOU DIRECTLY?
God Speed you, Sarah Outen!!!
