Hope this turns out OK; either way will no doubt start a debate about kids attempting this and the responsibilities of their parents.

I think that debate started before she left...
Fingers crossed they manage to pick her up.

It was always going to happen sooner or later to one of them.

Lets just hope that this will be a Bullimore

She's been found safe on the boat, but de-masted.

 Yes very good news, It is not the same now as in the old days, GPS and trackers all over the boat and person, so she is not realy lost at sea.

 She should get a book out of this and mybe a second attempt if she is still ok. The main thing for me is the people who have been lost at sea in the rescue aircraft over the years. not a nice for the kids if there dad goes missing at work. The post on some forums talk of wasted tax money, but life is more important than money.
