Re: Jeanne Socrates' "Nereida" Damaged in Record Attempt

The photo of the boat apparently arriving in Victoria shows a boat looking brand new. How can that be? Maybe it was a photo when she was leaving. I saw Matt Rutherford's boat when he arrived in Annapolis after making his solo non stop circumnavigation of the Americas and it showed much wear.

Fantastic!! This is just such great news!

And by the way, this should be in a new thread! One that says something about success rather than damage!

BRAVO JEANNE SOCRATES !

You are the best really, I am very happy for you.

I hope to hear and see you soon and read you.

Does anyone have some links or interviews etc that Jeanne will be giving ?

We need to think about what we can do with this thread and to continue it, it's been lots fun to read all the contributors here. Or, maybe you have some other threads or blogs etc please let me know.

Re: Jeanne Socrates' "Nereida" Damaged in Record Attempt

I started this one: I'm happy for everyone to move to the "Victory" thread. We were feeling quite concerned for her, but she got it all together and made it in to celebrate!

Good on ya, Jeanne!

Ann
