Yesterday was 30 years ago that aboard the 37 foot yacht, Blackmores First Lady, Kay Cottee (RPAYC Honorary Member) conquered more challenges than many of us face in a lifetime, and in doing so, she became an inspiration for generations to come. Alone at sea for 189 days and 32 minutes, she sailed back into Sydney Harbour on 5 June 1988 having logged 22,100 miles (or 35,566km) at an average speed of 116.93 miles per day. The voyage was completed without touching land, and without any form of outside aid apart from radio contact. What an inspiration!!
