    It sounded like a bad idea when she made the announcement, and this is the worst way to be right. I'm shocked that she has a "support team" but she was 400 miles from the nearest ship? Rather poor support. I hope they find her in time.

    Poor kid. The parents should be given a cell next to "Balloon Boy's" father.

    Agreed. I also feel the same way about parents who let high school kids go on spring break especially to other countries.

    So this is going to come across as very cold.

    I do pray they find her.

    I also hope that when they do find her, the mulitnational search and rescue expenses are fully funded by her moronic parents.

    Who could have foreseen anything bad happening to a teenage girl sailing the globe alone? It's a shocking development. Has to just completely blindside her cracker jack parents.

    For sure. I don't think my parents would let me sail around the world alone and I'm 24. Anyone who cared about this girl should have never let her go. I remember reading about this when it came out and I thought it was a dumb idea then.

    The difference is the 14 year old who climbed Everest wasn't doing it alone. If they had a problem there was someone right next to them to help.

    Re: Abby Sunderland lost at sea...

    in my mind, it's not so much that she's 16, it's that she's alone. That's idiotic for anyone to do at any age.

    Seems like a failure of her team, were her parents on the team that was supervising?
