No definitely not yawn.
It took Jeanne Socrates 7 hours to sail the last 6nm into Ogden Point In BC Canada.
That was the last stage of her second circumnavigation.
At 77 years of age the retired math teacher has just completed a non-stop, unassisted sail wholly under sail.
Her average speed was 1.5 knots and the total time at sea was 339 days.

What can you say? I awe, is about it.

Was the average really 1.5knots? Surely not.

Google is an advertising company disguised as a free and great search engine. They cant be unbiased with reviews since its in their interest to make sure their customers get as much business as possible and negative reviews wouldn't do that. They cause the "CTR" click through rate to drop and then their CPC cost per click falls which is where they get their $$$.
