Victoria senior completes solo, non-stop trip around the world

Third time’s the charm for an experienced sailor who just completed a solo, non-stop trip around the world.

Jeanne Socrates is 70 years old. She boarded her 11 metre cruiser in Victoria’s inner harbour last fall, setting sail on her epic journey.

That journey ended successfully when she returned early this morning, to great personal satisfaction and a new world record.
