My issue here is not the sailing around the world aspect. It's the youngest aspect, and how that affected the voyage. She needed sponsors to do the trip, and the youngest tag is what got them. The problem was Jess Watson was already on the water. If Abby waits till next year she is not youngest, = no money. Frankly I am also troubled by the decision to continue after South Africa. It appears from a post on her site that was quickly taken down, members of her team may not have been comfortable with how late it was getting. I am glad she is safe. I do wish this nonsense about being the youngest to do something would end. Next year a even younger woman is going to make the attempt. How young do we go? 14? 12?
