Posted By Jennifer Handley, February 15, 2014

Bluewater Cruising Association extends heartfelt congratulations to Jeanne Socrates (www.svnereida.com) who has just been awarded the Blue Water Medal by the Cruising Club of America!! 

Jeanne Socrates 

Jeanne started her third attempt from Victoria in 2012 and completed a non-stop circumnavigation last year in 259 days.

 

She became the first woman to sail nonstop around the world from North America and the oldest woman to sail solo nonstop around the world. Jeanne was supported and encouraged by many BCA members including, in particular, Ian Grant and Shaun Peck.
