Please note that Laura isn't planning a non-stop circumnavigation, nor is she planning a southern ocean route. Her route is a Panama-canal/Red Sea/Mediterranean route IIRC, and spaced out over almost two years.

I wish her luck but would point out that some of the worst pirate infested waters are along her route and that caution should be taken to avoid incident.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.
