I've mentioned this incredible lady in the Heavy Weather Sailing thread...but she belongs here as well since this thread gets a lot more traffic.
Jeanne Socrates - seriously gutsy sailor chick. She's on a solo-circ and was knocked down off Cape Horn sustaining some pretty heavy damage:
She's now in Ushuaia awaiting equipment to finish repairing her boat before continuing on.
She's keeping a great blog, and has been very generous in replying to emails. Check it out here:

She's what it's all about. Go Jeanne.
