Tania AEBI Biography

American yachtswoman. Born in 1966; lived in New York City.

Completed a 30-month circumnavigation of the world in 26-foot sloop Varuna (Nov 6, 1987), but was not considered the 1st American woman to sail solo around the world, since a friend had joined her for 80 miles of the trip while she was in the South Pacific.
