Jeanne Socrates

OCC Award - 2010

Yacht ‘ Nereida’. It was felt that Jeanne’s dogged determination and true grit in pursuing her goal to complete a solo circumnavigation following the death of her husband should be recognised and that the OCC Award reflects her outstanding drive and commitment. This award positively demonstrates the Club’s admiration for her achievements to date and the way in which she is promoting the objectives of the Ocean Cruising Club. Jeanne is currently in Ushuaia organising repairs after her knockdown 300 miles from Cape Horn.
