Emma Richards sent in this email from PINDAR to say that she is in the Southern Hemisphere! Congratulations Emma for being the second boat over the Equator in the Around Alone!
"1:18pm - Just crossed the equator at 23deg 37 W! I was down below ready to log where I crossed into the Southern Hemisphere when a squall came in, by the time I had eased the sheets, adjusted course etc we had crossed but when I was on deck I didn't see the big yellow line painted so it must have washed away at that part. Let me know if Thierry reports the line or not! Anyway, had a sip of fine rum and gave Neptune the rest, hope he liked it, it burned my throat! Emma x"
