Comments A Dip in the Ocean: Rowing Solo Across the Indian

  • Jen

    A wonderful, engaging, funny, uplifting read about an amazing true-life adventure! Sarah Outen named her rowboat "Serendipity" and took 500 chocolate bars as part of her provisions so I liked her immediately. I liked that she shares her moments of doubt, her inner critical voices and what she does to motivate herself. Her descriptions of spectacular sunsets and the most amazing starry nights ever made me wish for more photographs. Highly recommended! (Huge thanks to my friend Meryl for gifting m [...]


  • Rob Hood

    This book is very inspiring! I Loved reading it!


  • Paul

    Excellent, emotionally written book of the youngest person to ever cross an ocean solo in rowing boat


  • Carol

    this is a fascinating true story of Sarah's solo adventure across the Indian Ocean. She is determined and goal oriented and had such a passion to stay the course!. Sarah is a very gifted writer.


  • Joe White

    One of the better if not the best of the ocean rowing diary-travelogues. I was not aware that Sarah had crash landed on the reef at Mauritius. This book has one of the few accounts of a reef encounter in high waves. She also used a helmet for the high wave rolls, which is the first time I remember this being recorded. Having just read "Wild Waters In The Roar", where one of the rowers suffered a concussion during the first Indian Ocean rowing attempt, I am surprised that this hasn't been mention [...]


  • Maria Elmvang

    Absolutely fascinating memoir! Very well written, and so interesting! Parts had me crying and parts had me cheering. I seriously cannot even imagine setting out on such a huge adventure / challenge alone though! I'd be completely terrified. But I love living vicariously through others, and this book was right up there with Changing Gears: A Family Odyssey to the End of the World, in how much it captivated me.I need to google Sarah Outen now, and read more about the London2London trip she mention [...]


  • Kristy McCaffrey

    A wonderful account of Sarah's solo trek to row the Indian Ocean. She succeeded, becoming the first woman to do so, along with being the youngest. Her prose is immediate and invites you to be right along with her, from the decision to do it in the first place to the deep grief of the sudden loss of her father before the journey begins. You'll feel as if you rowed the entire thing right along with her. I appreciated her focus on details--what her daily routine was like, how much she loved seeing [...]


  • Trevor

    When you read Sarah's account of her incredible feat of endurance you will be truly in awe. This young woman took on the southern India Ocean on her own, in a tiny boat, with no possibility of rescue, and she triumphed. Any superlatives that might be applied to describe this epic endeavour seem totally inadequate. The story is superbly written and the reader very soon feels involved in the adventure (albeit in slightly more comfortable and stable environment). The book is enthralling, entertaini [...]


  • Ramarie

    Great fun to read, as Sarah chronicles her solo voyage rowing across the Indian Ocean! An amazing adventurer, I was amazed at her perseverance and endurancerough various storms and sheer exhaustion. Her sense of appreciation for the ocean and its power and its beauty make it all the surprising then (and disappointing) that she would be so completely non-religious: "why would I need religious faith when I had faith in myself?". Still, a vicarious thrill to read.


  • Simon

    Well what a girl. I was drawn into this adventure by Sarah's immensely likeable character whose whole approach to life on the edge is hugely impressive. She's like one of the famous five but now grown up, retaining and standing up for all the righteous values and not afraid to bare all for the cause. A great heroine!


  • Joe Dow

    Gripping from start to finish!A true adventure with some heart stopping moments. Sarah's writing conveys humour too in Bob and the Tweedles. The book paints a vivid picture of a high seas adventure. Very inspiring.


  • Chung-yee

    A personal journal, an inspirational tale of adventure though I did find the writing to be babbling at times.


  • Gwyneth

    As with so many interesting memoirs, a good story but not great writing. Pretty amazing story of a woman rowing across the Indian ocean, don't think that is for me!


  • Judy Mccarthy

    Good book if you having difficult sleeping. Better than sleeping pills


  • D Hemstad

    easy read, very descriptive of her voyage and the strength she needed. Hard to imagine


  • Myriam Schärz

    I liked that the book had chapters with real titles and quotes. I loved her writing but it was always clear that she's not a writer at heart. Captivating though and she did make me laugh a few times.


  • Amy

    This girl was brave!!!! It was fun to read about her crazy adventure from the safety and comfort of my home. So crazy when she jumped into the water!


  • Audrey

    One of those books where a majority of the tale's strength comes from the fact of the endeavor itself: rowing across the Indian Ocean alone. Rowing. In a rowboat. For four solid months.


  • Trey

    Inspiring, touching, funny, and if this doesn't make you wanna rush out on an adventure of your own you're dead inside ;)
