At 14 years old we're not rewarding her sailing ability or navigation skills, just the fact she might be a young, lucky, girl. And what happens if she's not lucky?

This is stupid.

Crew Wanted: sailing round the world, captain is a 14 year old girl. Who would even consider going? Really?
This is a big reason why she's doing it by herself, no one with a clear mind would be dumb enough to sign up for this voyage.
