Presenting "Kay Cottee," a tribute in ink to a legendary woman who left her mark on maritime history. Kay Cottee, an Australian yachtswoman, set out November 29, 1987 to make her name in seafaring annals. 189 days later, she emerged victorious as the first woman to complete a solo, unassisted circumnavigation of the globe. This ink, in a deep, oceanic blue with a hint of teal, captures the essence of the perilous seas she navigated. Its depth and breadth mimic the wide, imposing Southern Ocean that defied her perseverance. A silver sheen bursts to turquoise when hit by light, symbolizing the stars she used as her map. Vivid red lines signify the dawn and dusk of her journey. This ink honors a brave woman who took on the world's oceans alone and succeeded. We recommend a medium to broad pen that is easy to disassemble for cleaning to bring out its shimmer.
This ink is an echo of Cottee's odyssey, a deep oceanic blue nuanced with a hint of salty teal, capturing the essence of the tumultuous seas she navigated.
