Modest ambition

A sixteen year old Australian woman is trying to become the youngest person to ever sail solo around the world.

Questions from Live Sail Die:

As a parent, would you let your 16 year old child attempt this record?

As a parent, would you let your 16 year old son attempt this record?

As a parent, would you let your 16 year old daughter attempt this record?

If something goes wrong will she have the physical strength to fix it? How about her mind set?

Well, I’m not a parent, but when I was 16 I could barely shave on my own, so I think that I might hold my daughter back until she’s a little older. Lip gloss at 17, dating at 18, sailing around the world at 21.
