Has This Girl got Guts or What??!

Read more about her on her blog. Is this another Ellen McArthur in the making?

She has guts, no doubt about that. Thanks for the link to her blog.

I have to admire her guts but also have a concern about where this "youngest to sail solo around the world" thing is heading. I fear that ambitious parents are going to keep pushing this record lower and lower until there is some disaster when someone without the skills and maturity to attempt this feat gets him or herself killed. How young is too young? 15? 13? 11?

Tillerman - to be honest I couldn't agee with you more! As a mum myself yes I like to see my kids achieve certain goals but I would be worried sick if my kid (and a daughter at that) had to sail solo round the world at that age ! You certainly have a very valid point.
