Abby Sutherland's adventure

  1. Jun 11, 2010 #1
    Abby Sutherland, age 16, sailed her 40 foot boat alone south of latitude 40 S into the teeth of the Antarctic winter and the most remote and violent seas on earth. Guess what? She got into trouble and is now awaiting rescue by three ships being sent from the French island of Reunion (whose crews must now also risk their own lives). I'm glad she's been located apparently alive and well in her mastless sailboat. But give me a break! Now any number of people need to get involved to save her young butt. Maybe I'm being too harsh. Anyone agree or disagree with my disapproval of this stunt?
