Donna Lange: "Sail Twice Around: Non-Stop Sail around the World"
Presented by Donna Lange
On July 26th, 2015, Donna Lange will depart on INspired INsanity to solo sail around the world nonstop. Come listen to her story about her first trip around the world and how she plans to do it again.
Donna Lange is not just a grandmother of 11—she’s a musician, songwriter, registered nurse, delivery captain, the founder of OceansWatch North America and one of the few American female sailors to circumnavigate solo. In 2007, Donna sailed around the globe and stopped twice along the way. Now she’s planning to again circumnavigate solo on her Southern Cross 28 Inspired Insanity, this time non-stop. She’ll leave Bristol, Rhode Island, in July and return in May 2016. Along the way she’ll raise funds for OceansWatch. To fund her trip, Donna is producing a CD and the book, Finding My Way in Song. - - Read More...
