I just finished watching a documentary on Netflix called “Wild Eyes”. This is a story of a 16 year old girl – Abby Sunderland – who in 2010 embarked on her dream of sailing around the world solo!
Her yacht – Wild Eyes – was knocked down, rolled 360° and dis-masted by a rogue wave in the middle of the Indian Ocean. She was about half-way into her adventure. Though Abbey was knocked down she was not out!
Her story is a great inspiration to all young people who may have met their own rogue wave.
Abby’s experience did not diminish her love of sailing or put a stop to her adventures. Well done Abby!
