Selfie birthday

About the British woman Jeanne Socrates, which makes a round trip of 11.5-meter yacht Nereida, we wrote just a month ago. What made us return to this subject? It’s very simple: Mrs. Socrates was 77 years old!

For those who have only recently started to visit our website – some details. Socrates, as has been said, is British, but moved to Victoria in the extreme West of Canada. She’s been around the “ball”. His previous circumnavigation (which is the same as now, began in Victoria) Socrates concluded July 8, 2013 – when she was 70 years and 325 days. The achievement is not broken until now and included in the “Guinness Book of records”.

But to be the woman who had made a single voyage around the world, Socrates little. She hopes to become the most elderly of all – regardless of gender. What you need to beat the record recently set by the race winner Golden Globe Race Jean-Luc van den Heede from France, 73 years 129 days.

And now, the woman Jeanne was 77, while Victoria only 1045 miles. The stern 26693 miles. In the way Socrates is 321 day planned that will have to approach Victoria, but had to slow down because of several storms in a row.

And that’s how she celebrated the day of birth. Took a shower on deck. Made a point hair. Sprayed perfume. And proceeded to the holiday dinner. Opened a jar of smoked chicken, launched a packet with slices of chorizo sausage. Plus a piece of pie (with him and took pictures). Plus mango juice with gin. And a lot of chocolate for dessert. Yeah, people are able to get!

Canada is getting closer, but it still needs to be reached. We wish Mrs. Socrates quickly and without problems to arrive home. Where her long waiting.
