I am up in Victoria, BC on vacation celebrating my birthday with my wife Bridget. We were on the main drag near the Empress Hotel when I spotted s/v Nereida on the docks below. Jeanne Socrates just completed a lap around the planet on this fine vessal. She set the record for the oldest person to go around at 77 years young. And she is a tiny lady. It took her 339 days to accomplish this amazing feat. Congrats to you, Jeanne!!
This was her 4 time to attempt this and she has completed it twice. On one of her trips, she was 60 miles from completing her lap when her boat crashed into the beach in Mexico. She is an amazing lady.
