The November edition of Yachting Monthly lends weight to your claim as it quotes the Chief Executive of the RYA as saying, " I see no merit in so-called records where the objective is to be the youngest".
Rod Carr, the CE, has voiced "grave resovations about the continuing drive by teenagers to become the youngest circumnavigator." The publication continues, "He fears that if one of the youngsters meets with disaster, calls for sailing to be regulated would affect ordinary yachtsmen."
I fear that articles like the one I refer to will continue to apear in yachting journals as will forum debates until this madness is brought to an end. Hopefully that will happen without being preceeded by a disaster but, unfortunately, I doubt that.
