Im 86 years young, Ive sailed before with Hiro and my daughter Janet, and they asked me to come, so here I am. Ive had my own boat before, just sailing from here to Catalina, but Hawaii of course is much further. So Im looking forward to just being part of this, for going this far, and enjoying the experience.

When asked about her role on the team, Fischer said I will do anything I can to help. But when on the helm I was asked to look out for refrigerators and whales!
I think you just blew their cover!
