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:

Sailing Yacht Nereida - Ushuaia update 10

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