Jeanne has been solo circumnavigating for just over two years. She recently found herself beached just short of her closing the loop point as a result of falling asleep while under power.

What a sad story.

We met her at the 2007 Ham Operator's Christmas BBQ just near our home (south of Durban). She mentions this BBQ weekend in her blog HERE. She is a wonderful, very capable lady.

I am very sorry to hear this. Last October my boat had an encounter with some rocks and I almost lost her. For while I though I did. So, I can empathize with her.
