Bid to make a solo circumnavigation

Solo sailor Jeanne Socrates is on passage to Hawaii from Tahiti in her bid to make a solo circumnavigation on her Najad 38, Neirida.

Her Cape Town to Hobart passage took 56 days of ‘often stormy conditions’ and Hobart to Tahiti took a further 37 days, which she described as ‘another difficult passage.’

From Hawaii she plans to sail to Victoria, British Columbia. ‘I hope to complete my solo circumnavigation via the Five Great Capes by the end
of July,’ she said.
