Growing Bolder Presents: Jeanne Socrates


Last Updated on October 20, 2020

In 2019, British yachtswoman Jeanne Socrates, 77, became the oldest person ever to sail around the world unassisted. In the process, she also became the first woman to sail solo nonstop unassisted around the world from North America. Fresh off her world-record trip around the world, Growing Bolder welcomed Jeanne to the Center for Health & Wellbeing in Winter Park, Florida, for a fascinating discussion about her incredible journey. Growing Bolder Founder/CEO Marc Middleton led a moderated discussion with Jeanne about her persistence, tenacity and determination.
