Sarah sets off on her Yukon River Quest adventure, at Midday 26 June local time – they are eight hours behind us, so I hope she’s trying to get some sleep despite the midnight sun.

Sarah & Esther have clocked up hundreds of miles of paddling training, just getting ready for their 440 mile canoe race down the Yukon – now less than a month away.  their blog is at http://bearlyscared.blogspot.co.uk/  the race page is at http://www.yukonriverquest.com/ with a link to the race tracker via on board transponder.   in the wilderness, there tends not to be a mobile signal.

hope there’s enough water by then – on 12 May, the Yukon was still frozen!

Don’t think there’ll be many Alderman Smith Old Girls who’ve tried this.
