I was originally in favour of letting young kids attempt these record breaking trips...
I think that the truth of the matter is that these are commercial endeavors... kids shouldn;t have to go out and make money at this age.
If this keeps up one of these kids will die.
I know the streets are dangerous but trying to break records on the ocean is much more dangerous.
Whether the government outlaws this or not is not the question...I suggest that we as community should not support this.
