As a woman and a person who is partially of Polish decent, this weeks circumnavigator especially interests me.  Click the link above to read the full Wikipedia article.

Most other articles I found were in Polish but the sites can be translated by most browsers I’m sure.

Krystyna Chojnowska-Liskiewicz

Krystyna Chojnowska-Liskiewicz (born 15 July 1936, in Poland) was the first woman to sail single-handed (i.e. solo) around the world, repeating the accomplishment of Joshua Slocum.[1][2][3] She sailed from the Canary Islands on 28 February 1976, and returned there on 21 April 1978, completing a circumnavigation of 31,166 nautical miles (57,719 km) in 401 days.

  1. You actually make it appear really easy along with your
    presentation however I in finding this topic
    to be actually one thing that I think I might by no means
    understand. It kind of feels too complicated and very vast for me.
    I am taking a look forward in your subsequent submit, I will try to
    get the dangle of it!

  2. This is a topic that’s near to my heart… Many thanks! Exactly where are
    your contact details though?
