Inspiring Story from Scanstrut Sponsored Sailor

Back in 2009 Jeanne Socrates, a British sailor contacted us with her radar installation requirements for her new yacht ‘Nereida’ a brand new Najad 380 built by Najadvarvet at Henån on the island of Orust in Sweden, just north of Göteborgt (read more here about what product we supplied Jeanne).

Her plan was to attempt a solo, non-stop sail around the world starting in September 2009.

Well, a few weeks ago we heard from Jeanne. She had arrived in Cape Town on 11th May after completing a 14 month solo circumnavigation and it sounds like she had quite an adventure!
