As I have indicated many many times before - 16 makes it legal in her home state.

Sounds like you believe she will sail around the world and then excuse me what?

A non-stop solo is say 6 months.

Like what - no life after sailing?

Or we do not need social skills once we sail around the world?

LOL, really

Hi Guys,

Beer not an issue here - we were sailing more than cruising so alcohol was not on the provisioning list.

To everybody - an explanation - we did not sail non-stop, sorry for unintentional making the false impression!
