Ok, guys, get ready to prepare for a rescue, to safe this girls life, from the seas of mother nature. I think this is absolutely a case of child neglect, and the parents, need their heads examined. Is it a way, to get attention, and make money, on your childs foolish 'huck finn" adventures for a new reality show? I think the shipping community, should voice their opinions on this child’s adventure, and the Dutch government, should intervene, before it s too late. Here, we are talking about safe practices in the oil industry, and we are sitting back , watching these irresponsible parents, let their 14 year old daughter, take sail around the world , by herself. Please some one stop this !!!

All solo-sailers should be arrested the moment they leave port, for criminal intent.
If you are solo, you [B]c a n n o t[/B] keep a decent lookout as per Colregs;
"… a continuous lookout must be kept…"
