Abby Sunderland's Solo Sailing Adventure

I'm following another 16 year old girl hoping to become the youngest person to complete a circumnavigation of the globe. She is Abby Sunderland from Thousand Oaks California.
In her words:It has been my dream since I was 13 years old and began single-handing, to one day sail solo around the world. I am 16 years old and this blog will contain the story of my attempt to become the world's youngest solo circumnavigator.

Abby with her boat, Wild Eyes, left in January 2010 from Marina Del Rey, California. Because of mechanical problems, she restarted her trip from Cabo San Lucas, Mexico in February. Yesterday, Feb. 20th Abby crossed the equator headed for the Horn, the southern tip of South America.
