That damned thing certainly gets along. Notice how, under a rumply main, only, she's doing 5/6 knots in mild wind
. Which all gets me wondering why Abby's 'team' went for a handful rather than something more majestic (like an S&S 34) and little more controllable.
So now Abby is heading for the Horn in winter conditions, in a boat which seems to me to be designed for racing
around the bouys.
Think of the extra taxes
she wil pay! The wind chill is going to sap her strength, big time. The Sea's are likely to be huge. Just when she 'must' do something to maintain safety
, her numbed mind and body might refuse.
If she gets through this then Abby will be the youngest person to have ever driven the Southern Ocean, in winter, in a totally inappropriate yacht, solo.
If she gets through this.
I so fervently hope she does.
