Have you read about this remarkable young woman who at 16 has completed a solo, unassisted journey sailing around the world.
She truly is an inspiration to us all. What a life she has ahead of her!
Take a look at her site:

and the shame of it is that it wont go down as a world record apparently although she is the youngest ?
she is to young to be given the worlds youngest record for sailing around the world.

I don't want to take anything away from her, but the thought of happily waving your 16 year old off as they set out to sail around the world on their own makes my blood run cold!

I'm with Claudia on this one. I'll I can say is what kind of parent(s) would allow such a thing?!

I disagree.

Let your children learn from their mistakes when they old enough to.

Bravo, Jessica!

Sounds good, but I convinced my parents I was capable enough to do many things when I was sixteen.

I wasn't!

From what I've seen she is a very focused young woman. She also had logged over 12,000 nautical miles before undertaking this trip and so was a very experienced sailor.
Her message to everyone is that she's just an ordinary person but one who has worked hard to fulfil her dream. I hope she inspires many others to follow theirs!

All I can think about is pirates. She is a very brave young woman.
