This is why you don't let your 16 year old daughter sail around the world alone...

Damn I posted a Mighty Boosh thread a while back, it got ignored. I had never seen the show, it is so damn stupid. Love it. Cartoon network keeps moving it around through.

Abby Sunderland, 16, is alive and apparently well, floundering in rough seas in the Indian Ocean without a mast, but safely aboard her 40-foot boat and awaiting the arrival of rescue ships.


I hope they charge her parents with child neglect and require them to pay for all search and rescue costs.

Her parents should be arrested.


Really? I don't think so. She is 16, history is full of people who have done great things by age 16. I think sometimes kids are sheltered too much and sometimes too little. I think it depends on the person and how mature they are. Some 16 year old girls are way more mature than 22 year old boys. :)

Everything I read about this suggests she was not forced into this in any way and is a prodigy sailor.

I say good for her.

From a sailing standpoint she chose the wrong time and route and new this ahead of time. Seems obvious in retrospect.

Fixed


But I agree with the maturity thing though... Anyone ever heard of Amelia Earhart?

But then again, this does nothing to solve the stigma that women are more prone to getting lost... ;)

Very true.....this girl had a much better chance of safely sailing around the world then JBro would have sailing across Lake Norman.

The issue isn't about her parents forcing her, it's about stopping her.
