I've been following Freya for the entire journey. The most dramatic entries in her blog are when she went around Cape Horn. She insisted on going around the outside of the southernmost island, not the inside passage. I had lunch with her after her Australia trip. She's an amazing woman.

I followed her solo circumnavigation of Australia daily and it was fascinating. She crossed the Gulf of Carpinteria, an 8 day, 7 night open water passage, sleeping laid back or forward in the boat, with sponsons rigged on her paddles. Even more gripping was her account of paddling sections along the 100' continuous cliffs of the Oz west coast escarpment in the wild surf and clapotis of the south Indian Ocean. NO possibility of landing at all and constantly being buffeted by massive waves, requiring continuous paddling and frequent combat rolls for 36 hours or more.
