    I had the great pleasure and honor of speaking to Jeanne from the U. S. Virgin Islands on August 7,2019 when she was on the opposite side of the world from me in the Pacific. Congratulations to Jeanne on an amazing achievement and for establishing another sailing record that I am sure will stand for a long time!

    Worked her on 40m early one morning and the station sstateside wanting to coordinate who speaks to her either ignored me or couldnt hear me. Lucky she herself recognized my call and made the qso. Been seeing alot of this on the amateur bands where its become a buddy system and thats not good operating practices.

    I distinctly heard one station who will remain nameless to save them the flak call those buddy systems the okey dokey net.

    Congratulations Jeanne on your incredible trek. I was one of the fortunate who had a QSO with you
    and followed your journey all the way.

    Any videos of the arrival? I followed along by listening on WebSDR for part of the journey.
