Jeanne Socrates completes circumnavigation

My hats off to this intrepid sailor. A solo, nonstop, unassisted circumnavigation!
Congratulations on completing your goal!

A truly inspiring individual that didn't let age or previous failed attempts get in her way, good on her...

Awesome! Seems like just yesterday I was reading her blog while she was preparing. Glad she made it and glad to have another inspirational sailor in the world.

Extraordinary woman, a very impressive accomplishment...

I'd like to be like her when I grow up, though perhaps a bit less obsessed with the whole Non-Stop thing... (grin)

I've had the good fortune of exchanging some emails with Jeanne. She is an awesome lady and an awesome sailor. I admire that woman.
