Sailing Into the Record Books

Historic folklore would have you believe that having a woman aboard a ship was bad luck. Well duh, that's total bullshit. Say hello to the Captian and crew of the INSV Tarini. This six-member, all women's crew is planning to set sail to become the first all female team from India to circumnavigate the globe. They'll pass Austrailia, New Zealand, Falklands and South Africa before returning to India in March of 2018. They bring years of experience to the boat as officers in the Indian Navy. With the blessing of the Prime Minister - they plan to set sail in September. Boy Voyage!
