Re: 69 year's old woman sailed away for a solo circumnavigation
I don't know about that but regarding the ridiculous of all those type of records or making races in old boats that are no longer adapted to it the French have a delicious movie that is a supposed to be a promotion about :
"un tour du monde en solitaire au départ de Saint-Tropez, sans assistance et sans escale, réservé aux Muscadet. Autre originalité : la limite d'âge des skippers, fixée à 6 ans... Le prologue de cette "Solitaire de Saint-Tropez" a été remporté par Sarah, 4 ans. "
translating: a world solo non-stop circumnavigation without assistance for skippers with less than 6 years and raced on Muscadet. (Muscadet is a very old and popular small French boat). The prologue of that race was won by 4 years's old Sara.
Have a look at her performance:
