    ANCHORAGE, Alaska (AP) — A 28-year-old British adventurer became the first woman to row solo from Japan to Alaska, arriving late Monday at a small town in the Aleutian Islands after 150 days and 3,750 miles at sea.

    "I have had some of the most intense and memorable months of my life out on the Pacific, it has been brilliant and brutal at the same time," Sarah Outen said in a statement. "And it has been a privilege."........

    Next spring, she plans to return to Adak with a teammate, Justin Curgenven, to continue to mainland Alaska by kayak. She will then bike across Canada and North America before attempting a solo row across the Atlantic Ocean to the United Kingdom...........
