With one simple goal – to circle the globe under her own steam – adventurer Sarah Outen sets off in her kayak from Tower Bridge, London towards France with a plan to cycle, kayak, and row her way around the world. A year later she is plucked from the Pacific Ocean amid a tropical storm, her boat broken, her spirit even more so. But giving up is not an option.

Presentation followed by the announcement of the 2018 John Lauchlan Memorial Award recipients, and films in competition.
