* Since the publication of this article it has been brought to our attention that Jeanne has sadly had to postpone her voyage due to a serious injury, she is now recovering in hospital and we wish her a speedy recovery and hope that she will be able to continue her mission at some point in the near future.*
World record holder Jeanne Socrates is busy preparing for what she hopes to be her second sail nonstop and unassisted around the world in her boat Nereida. Jeanne became the oldest woman to successfully sail around the world nonstop on Monday 8th July 2013 and has since attempted to become the oldest person. After coming across various problems with her boat in 2016 when she gave two solo attempts, Jeanne has spent the last few months fixing problems with the boat and getting new parts fitted and created to ensure that 2017 is her year. Now aged 75 Jeanne is ready for the challenge and is looking forward to becoming the oldest person to sail nonstop unassisted (what an achievement)!
Hypro are delighted to announce that we have been helping Jeanne in her preparations for what is expected to be a 7-8month long journey! Continue reading World Record Holder Jeanne Socrates Is About To Begin Her Solo Trip Around The World Using Hypro Hydraulics
