whats your opinion on this girl? i think its amazing that her parents let her go for the trip, sad she didn't make it. inexperienced I dont believe is a fair word, she probably has a lot more experience then most of us. I think we will hear about her again, she says she will circumnavigate again. i just wish i was doing that when i was 16.

Well she does NOW!

Went to a SSCA do with Tanya Abby ,

her first night before departure in NY harbor , they had to go out and tell her the anchor had to have more line than just to touch the bottom!

Why not a 10 year old? 9? 8? where does the parents desire for "fame" stop?

Balloon boy 2?
