British adventurer Sarah Outen was rescued by the Japanese Coast Guard Friday afternoon after sustaining damage to her boat when it rolled over multiple times during a tropical storm.
"Sarah is now safe aboard the recovery vessel sent by the Japanese Coast Guard," her team, London2London wrote on her blog this afternoon. "We are awaiting final confirmation of details of Sarah's arrival in Japan and will let you know more once we have further information."
Outen has been traveling solo since April 2011 when she set out to cycle, kayak and row over 20,000 miles to circumnavigate the planet.
The expedition is slated to take 2.5 years and requires Outen to row 7,500 nautical miles, kayak 300 nautical miles and cycle 16,000 miles.
She has already completed over 11,000 combined miles of cycling and kayaking and is halfway to her goal, her team reports.
"Focusing on calm trying 2 block out wind and waves. Visualizing family and friends pulling us in," Outen tweeted, while awaiting rescue.
Her team has since reported that she has arrived safely in Japan. It has not yet been announced when she will continue on her journey.
