I was fortunate to be on hand when Abby set off on her quest to round the world non-stop. It was one of those really celebratory and scary moments when everyone there realized that it was exciting, and also a near impossible task.
Unfortunately all our fears are happening and we can only hope and pray that she will be found in time and that she is ok.
Like all things in life, if there isn't some risk, is it really much more than a chore?
Here are some shots from the day that she set sail.
