Good points, but--dammit-- that led to another rabbit hole reading the rules for a WSSRC record. Apparently she may be eligible, assuming all the fees were paid, etc, etc. That would be well deserved.Only realised the other day (after killing time looking at Pip's pages on her sponsors website) that Clarisse is easily on track to set a new female monohull single-handed non-stop RTW record. AFAIK it's still held by Ellen Mcarthur: https://fr.wikipedia.org/wiki/Vendée_Globe#Les_meilleurs_temps_féminins
That's a pretty notable achievement. Also probably represents considerable ROI for her sponsor as there'll be more coverage of that achievement than other mid-fleet boats.
Back to the other vortex of the 2002-03 Around Alone records . . .
