Circumnavigating Around the World!

Jeanne Socrates at AYC

Jeanne Socrates will do a presentation at AYC on Friday, Feb. 28 @ 7 PM. She has finally achieved her dream of circumnavigating the world solo in a sailboat, after several previous attempts, and she did so non-stop. She is the first North American woman to accomplish this.

This event is open to the public, so I'd like to put it out on the ASS web page if anyone else is interested in hearing her talk about her experience. BYOB.

    Great turnout and very interesting presentation. That she handled all the problems herself was amazing!

    Did I mention solo, with a year's worth of food and her third try? She holds the world record for most oldest woman to do this so far. Are you next?

    Followed Socrates on her multiple attempts - uncommon determination. Thanks, Brett for mentioning this. Anyone sailing over?

      Be advised there is limited dock space - the 3 T-heads can accommodate 2 boats, 3 with a squeeze. And the hike is no where near as bad as other marinas, like Commander's Point and Sail & Ski :-)
