Storm ends solo sail record attempt

 

Looks like it’s over before it really began, 74 year old Jean Socrates has been forced to turn her boat around after running into a storm that caused serious damage. Socrates is expected back in Victoria this weekend or early next. She was trying to become the oldest person to sail solo around the world. She does however already own the "oldest woman" to solo sail around the world. No word on whether she will resume her attempt once repairs are completed.
