Lisa is the:
The first woman to sail solo, non-stop and unassisted around Australia.
The first 100% eco-powered vessel to undertake a consecutive non-stop, unassisted, voyage around Australia.
And, established a new overall speed record as the fastest mono-hull to sail solo, non-stop and unassisted around Australia in 58 Days.
After her successful solo circumnavigation around Antarctica Lisa set her sights on an even more difficult challenge. Setting the goal of becoming the first woman to sail solo, non-stop and unassisted around Australia.
Lisa was always aware that this was a greater challenge due to the proximity to land. As Lisa is sailing solo she would only be able to sleep in 20 minuet bursts for almost 2 months while making sure that no error was made with all the additional hazards presented. Hazards such as reef, rocks, land, cyclones and the huge amounts of shipping around Australia.
Lisa continued her partnership with D’Albora Marinas - a premier marina company - and departed Sydney on October 20th, 2018. Lisa sailed over 6 500 nm around Australia finishing on December 17th, 2018. Lisa established two new world records. One as the first woman to sail solo, non-stop and unassisted around Australia as well as a new speed record as the fastest mono-hulled yacht to sail solo, non-stop and unassisted around Australia. Lisa completed the trip in 58 days, 2 hours, 25 minuets and 39 seconds.
