Screenshot 2017-04-04 10.07.03The fascinating and inspiring Lisa Blair has lost her bid to be the first woman to circumnavigate Antarctica on her final leg, dismasting about 900 miles South of the tip of Africa.  What a massive bummer for the recent SCOTW, but there’s good news in it: She’s physically OK and hasn’t asked for help, and a rescue could be implemented from South Africa if necessary.

We wish her the best and hope she can get back out there and finish the job quickly; until then, enjoy her Cape Horn rounding video and chat in the thread.  Photo from Lisa’s Facebook page.

If you watch one documentary this year, make it this one (including Part Two and Part Three), and then get into the Sailing Anarchy forums and ask the trip’s official navigator your own questions on the most excellent Sailing Anarchy thread.  You are, however, warned:  The thread has numerous spoilers, so we advise you to first watch this riveting documentary at the above links or via your own favorite video source and go to the forum with your curiosity afterwards.  Long time Anarchist and a guy who should already be called “Sir” – World Speed Record holder and inspirational envelope-pusher Paul Larsen has already answered quite a few good questions in the thread; add your own and he’ll get to those too.  Trust us – this one is worth every second of your time.
