The Mexican however, plans an audacious project sailing the 2'000 offshore miles solo on her Laser from Los Angeles to Hawaii this summer. 2 to 3 weeks nonstop-sailing would be required. She already has a longdistance World record on her Laser crossing the mouth of the Gulf of California - 285 miles - solo. One of the main reason to dare this bold undertaking is the finanincing of her Vendee Globe project.
