It is amazing to see the coverage that she is getting on all the news channels. So good for sailing. It will be difficult for her to go from such seclusion to the crowds that want to see her on arrival. I hope she now gets some time to sleep!

Every Englishman, at home or abroad, should be proud of this woman!

Can you imagine what it will be like for her to set foot on that dock?

I've been watching her progress from here in the USA.  Great pictures yesterday, of her being shadowed by the Royal Navy.

As they say over here,  awesome....truly awesome achievement!

A HUGE cheer from me too!  Well done to our lady of the sea!


And, great TV coverage.....at last,
maybe they (TV guys) have had a peak at this forum!
Thought they might come up with  a report a little like this.....
A young woman has been out for a sail    But no, much better this time, I still chuckle at the report they gave about Mike G's main halyard breaking......'a rope broke' yeep thats what they said! talk about understate the situation!

A happy day for us sailors..... Ellen you are one in a million!!
