You people are so stupid. “I don’t let my 16 year old out past 11 PM” Give me a break. Everyone is so concerned about the parents being held responsible. This is none of your business anyway. Her older brother was 17 and did it. Age has nothing to do with this. What if she was 18? Would it really make that big of a difference? We are human beings! We take risks. This was her dream, and she knows what she’s doing. She knows more about sailing a boat then most grown men do. Shelter your children, keep them safe or whatever you think you’re doing right (wrong). Sorry, but 16 is old enough to know right from wrong. Just because you didn’t when you were a stupid teenager, doesn’t mean she is incapable of determining what is logical and what Isn’t. If she had the ability to do it, and wanted to be the youngest to do it, then good for her. At least she’s doing something courageous! Go back to your mediocre stay at home life. Keep watching Oprah, and cleaning the kitchen. While you’re at it, make me a sandwich.
