I am in the process of completing the "America's Great Loop Cruise" single handed. It is the first time I have single handed. I have done near 5200 miles and only have about 250 more miles to go in order to close my Loop. On this trip I have met many people and I have to say that I have received many a compliment from the men I have met. Most have been amazed at what I am doing. Of course there will always be the odd one who thinks I have no business doing this. Each to their own, I say. I am 57 years old and have always enjoyed a challenge. I have been told I am the first to do this trip single handed in a sail boat. If there is anyone who knows another woman who may have done it ahead of me, I would really appreciate you dropping me a line. email@example.com
