When you are the skipper and your families life is dependant on your decisions, it does weigh on your mind when as Oma says., "it turns to custard" So, as we all, or maybe only some of us know, the decisions made on passage can be very hard to digest and are difficult to materialise. Only some of us can appreciate then, the thoughts which will go through this child's mind as she sees white water on a lee shore or a howling, breaking swell in a gale or listening to the sounds of the boat in a gale when down below.
As the father of a young teenager (who may be as able or more so, than this Laura) to cope with a solo passage, I feel the fear of every parent for this child.
Some people sail with the luck of the Gods. I hope she does.
