Jeanne Socrates on S/V Nereida (Amateur Call-VE0JS) – oldest woman to sail solo ​​nonstop​ ​unassisted around the world​. She is the first woman to sail solo nonstop unassisted around the world from North America.

I learned about Jeanne Socrates (VE0JS) from a close friend Gerard (KE7CF). He made contact with her while she was sailing the open seas on 40 meters, frequency 7160. Time to monitor 7PM.

Check out her blog to follow her adventures.
