One Amazing Woman

Meet Jeanne Socrates. 

Jeanne is on Day 256 of her solo unassisted nonstop circumnavigation of the world. She is 70 years old and one amazing woman. Ivan is monitoring her on his ham radio and checks in with her every day. Yesterday, I was there when they chatted. Jeanne was a little frustrated with the calm winds off the coast as she's trying hard to make it into Victoria. You can follow her at this link:

Check out her story and her blog. She's hoping to arrive this weekend, so if you're around, keep an eye out for her sails. Jeanne is the oldest woman to solo circumnavigate. What an inspiration.
