Cole Brauer has made history by sailing solo, around the world as the first American woman. She returned to A Coruña, a city in Spain after her historic voyage of 130 days abroad.

Cole Brauer made history by solo sailing over 30,000 miles. She earned second place in the competitive Global Solo Challenge after Philippe Delamare. Cole expressed excitement about her remarkable achievement.

Cole wrote on her Instagram what an amazing end. So excited. Thank you to everyone who came together and made this process possible. However, she offered regular updates on her journey, which began on October 29.

Meanwhile, her Instagram followers grew from less than 100,000 to over half a million. She battled severe, huge winds along the East Hampton, N.Y. She sailed on her Class 40 sailboat named “First Light.”

Cole learned to sail at the University of Hawaii. She also shared videos of herself receiving damaged ribs after being pushed around the cabin of her boat. Afterward, medical staff gave her fluids surgically to avoid dehydration.

Her journey took her around the three great capes including Africa’s Cape of Good Hope, Australia’s Cape Leeuwin, and South America’s dangerous Cape Horn.
