She wanted to better the record of oldest person to circumnavigate previously held by a 76 year old Japanese man. S
That was the case when she departed on this journey, but whilst she was at sea Tony Curphy eclipsed the previous record by a few years, and now she has eclipsed his.
I think the quest was silly myself, but applaud her incredible determination and patience.
When she was in the Southern Ocean we spoke to her most days on the ham Comedy Net. Despite bad conditions and boat
problems, she was always cheerful and upbeat, never seeming to doubt that she would succeed.
Well done, Jeanne!
