Biggest joke I've heard. So Basically:

'A TEENAGE girl attempting to sail solo around the world who collided with a ship less than 24 hours into her trip wants to carry on with the voyage.

Jessica Watson, 16, set sail on Ella's Pink Lady from the Sunshine Coast yesterday morning after more than a year of preparation.

The Sunshine Coast schoolgirl was attempting become the youngest person to sail solo, non-stop and unassisted around the world.


A spokesman for the Australian Maritime Safety Authority said her yacht collided with a bulk carrier shortly before 2.30am, about 15 nautical miles due east of Point Lookout, on North Stradbroke Island.'


Hows she think she can sail around the world when she can't even last a day without hitting something. women can't drive anything...

edit: link http://www.news.com.au/couriermail/story/0,23739,26047924-952,00.html

I live close to where this girl is from and it was just built up for months and months. Then after all that build up she lasts a day.
Yours Sincerely,

That girl is a f*cking n00b.
Seriously, those 'youngest person to...' records are just gonna get some poor kid killed by parents attempting to live vicariously.

Firstly, link please?

If she trained that long I'm sure she's capable and it was just some other factor involved and not just "lol she can't do it"

Also women can't drive anything? I know it was a joke but it just makes guys look stupid when you say those kinda things so don't please.

while thts true, it isnt the case in this situation, this time its just a girl that doesnt realize too much confidence is a bad thing.

"Daddy, I am sooo getting on that boat around the world..."


To be honest, I feel sorry she couldn't do it. But come on... 24 hours in? You'd think someone who had the audacity to attempt a circumnavigation could go at least longer than a day.

There was a 13 year old girl that wanted to do it, they're getting her mentally and physically screened to see if she can do it

It's not a joke if it's true.

You should probably mug John Frusciante or Ritchie Blackmore. They're small guys, we could take 'em.

Just look out for that other guy in the Red Hot Chili Peppers, Will Farrel. He's a tall mofo, got a long reach.

kudos to her for attempting something that challenging, it's a model of the human spirit.


however, i would suggest she first do it assisted, then solo.

Maybe not in THIS case, but records are there to be broken, and you're just going to see younger and younger kids attempting this, and they'll be less capable, both physically and mentally, of standing up to the challenge.

IIRC, didn't the Dutch authorities take the girl into care to prevent her setting off?
#15
Guys none of you have any idea what happened.

She didn't just drive into the ship. She would have been taking a sleep break.

You maybe right, but if she does attempt it again, I hope she is willing to fork out the money for the rescue.

A: Where in the heck did a 16 year old girl get a yacht?
B: How does she just run into another boat? Does she not know how to drive a boat?

A. Personal investment, huge sponsors.
B. I imagine she was either sleeping/cooking etc. You don't just drive into a freighter.
#26
I like that the boat was entirely pink.

I think I might be able to guess who picked the colour scheme...

Who would sponsor this?
No, but I'd imagine you'd stop the boat if you were going to go do something other than drive it.
#28
If she set off from Point Lookout, I hope she's watching out for Mirelurks.

And "Bulk carrier" my muscular buttocks, she collided with the USS Ozymandias.
#29
That's pretty stupid. container ships go on designated routes for that exact reason.

It doesn't help she will be associated with the gender stereotyping as well.

The boat company, her equipment providers etc. I imagine the boat will be hers, but equipment will have been sponsored.

And there's nothing saying she didn't stop the boat. The freighter might have hit her for all we know.

TS, you are such a loser. For christ's sake man, she's out trying to do something hard as hell and you're here ragging on her on the internet. Yeah, you're cool

When it comes down to it, it's hard as hell to do. You can't sleep until you get into the deep sea, otherwise you run the risk of hitting another boat, like she did. It was a freak accident, and she is still really awesome for trying it.

Just what the fuck have you done to make you so cool?

He stayed home instead of making himself look like a moron by saying 'i know how to sail a yacht' then crashing into another boat on the first day.
