OK OK OK.....look, I'd really like to come down on the poor girl and on her parents and on her sponsors but the trouble is I have this sneaking regard for people who want to do stuff everyone says they shouldn't.

Seriously....she is not seven years old she is sixteen. Yep that is young but its not THAT young. I really really wish she was not trying to go non stop cos then it would be hard to condemn her as vehemently though I guess if she kept pulling into port she might need Ansell as an extra sponsor or she might not end the voyage quite so alone.

Should the Oz government step in ? No they damn well should not. But I still wish she was not going non stop. Moral danger or no moral danger.
