Land Ho! Northport woman, fiancé finish sailing across Atlantic Ocean

Jessie Zevalkink and her fiancé left Northport, Mich. back in April to take a trip across the Atlantic Ocean to the shores of England.

LEELANAU COUNTY, Mich. (WPBN/WGTU) -- What started out as a joke turned into a three month long sailing adventure from northern Michigan all the way to England.

Jessie Zevalkink and her fiancé left Northport, Mich. back in April to take a trip across the Atlantic Ocean to the shores of England.

On Friday, Zevalkink posted it took them 17 days to cross the Ocean and they have made it to their destination.

Zevalkink posted on her Facebook page: "It's a blur. A huge blur of days and nights blended together with cans of beans. It was cool. It was so cool. I have many stories for you."

Now, this isn't Zevalkink's first sailing adventure. Back in 2012, she sailed America's Great Loop with one of her best friends, Katie Smith and her dog, Reggie. They spent two years making that trip.
