Lisa Blair challenges solo Antarctic circumnavigation record

Fearless Australian yachtswoman Lisa Blair nearly lost her life, twice, in the Southern Ocean back in 2017.

On Monday 21 February she slipped lines from Albany, Western Australia, to face her fears and return to these notoriously stormy seas in a three-month long second attempt to sail solo, non-stop, unassisted, around Antarctica in record time aboard her 50 foot (15 Metre) yacht ‘Climate Action Now’ loaded with scientific monitoring devices and probes.

UK based Blue Aurora Media is one of her supporting partners. Executive Producer/Director Jonathan Levy worked with her ten years ago when she became an ocean sailor and circumnavigated the planet in the Clipper Round the World Yacht Race.
