MARINA DEL REY, Calif. — A 16-year-old has set out to become the youngest person to sail around the world alone.

 Abby Sunderland of Thousand Oaks sailed into the sunny Pacific Ocean on Saturday after being delayed a few days by a series of violent storms in California.

 Her boat-builder father, Laurence, along with other family members and fiends cheered at the Del Rey Yacht Club as they watched the 40-foot craft called Wild Eyes depart.

The current record holder is 17-year-old Mike Perham of Britain, who took the mark last year from Abby’s then-17-year-old brother Zac. She plans to be at sea for five or six months. She will be alone but able to communicate via satellite telephone and a blog (at abbysunderland.com)

uh, by herself? okay, the father builds boats and they’ve probably sailed somewhere everyday. this girl is 16 and plans to be at sea for up to six months and the parents just waved her off?! and they let son do it last year? why isn’t she in school anyway?!

no ma’am.
