A Dutch court today put 13-year-old Laura Decker's bid to sail around the world alone on hold. Most 13-year-old girls would not be allowed to spend a night without adult supervision so how do you feel about this?

I thought, when I read about Laura Decker, that this post would evoke many responses but we have only received 11 votes. In a way, I think this issue was outshadowed by Jessica Watson's departure and rapid return to port after her collision.

Nevertheless, the ressult is clear. CL members would pull the plug on this voyage.

Topic closed and let's move on to new issues.
