WELLINGTON, New Zealand — Here's how Robin Wright sees it: Her 19-year-old daughter Danielle is adrift on the Pacific Ocean but is keeping her spirits up with her six crewmates on their wooden sailboat, the Nina. They're collecting rainwater, rationing food, singing, telling travel stories and planning their next adventures. Heck, Wright figures, by now Danielle may even have gotten married to one of the three young men aboard. After all, the Nina's captain is a registered celebrant.

I can't imagine the anguish of deciding when "enough is enough" -- I guess from the article, it's when you run out of money.

I love how these parents had no problem with their daughter trying to sail the OCEAN in a 70 foot boat but want to blame New Zealand's government for not doing enough. If my 19 y/o daughter text me and said she was going to try to sail the ocean in a SMALL boat I would definately talk her out of it. A 70 boot on the Ocean would be like a 3 foot boat on Mil Lacs.
