No person, at 16, 17, 18, etc., has been around long enough to acquire enough hands on experience and knowledge to make such an attempt. Of course one does not realize that untill they are at least in their 30's. In her parents case, the 30's rule apparently does not apply either.
This is were it starts to get tricky though. More than one sub 18 year old have now completed solo circumnavigations and the Watson girl has thus far covered over 6,000 kilometres with only one itsy bitsy collision.
. (Sorry that was a cheap jibe.)
Its pretty hard to tell someone who has done 6000k offshore single handed that they lack the necessary experience.
