    Good Luck Ellen!

    Most of you will be awawe of UK wonder-woman Ellen McArthur, who is currently sailing around the World the fastest anyone ever has... on her own! She is roughly a day ahead of the current record holder and her journey is nearly over. Ellen is due to arrive in Falmouth some time tonight.

    I invite you to join HEXUS in wishing her the best of luck in completing what must be an incredible physical and mental challenge.

    You can track her progress via the Team Ellen website or BBC News.

    I agree with your statement, both in regards to her maintaining her lead and in regards to the journey being an extremely arduous one!

    the resilinece to be that scared, that tired and thar active for so many weeks is quite remarkable. While I know full well that I couldn't do it, I do see why she wants to do the seemingly daunting.

    She is a person of total strength and belief. Think she's a super star, the likes of whom England should be proud to create.

    I cant even picture in my worst nightmares, the huge seas, the lonelyness and the terror

    She's my person of the year....she is a star
