Pete,
I am not sure if you set out to dimish her achievements, but I am a solo sailor and I know something of what it takes. I am not aware of Laura ever suggesting she wanted to do a non stop passage, so your comments are comparing her achievements to something she never intended to do. I dont understand the reasons any one would feel the need to suggest she did less than someone else. If someone climbed everest would you then go on line stating that they didnt do it with minimum equipment or during the worst weather, or do it alone? In reality the fact that she didnt face 3 days of gales, or repairs to rigging mid passage is either down to better planning and preparation, or luck and should not be used to disparage her achievements.

I totally go along you! I have often felt that way but nobody really would like to take it as seriously as we do apparently. Excellent blog anyway, I am going to have to stop by more frequently.

Thanks for a very informative presentation! I read this article. I think you have a good think. I have been reviewing many blogs. Some are very informative some are entertaining. I have to say, good post on this blog, I’ll be sure to watch it again very soon. Thanks for sharing improving employee moral information.
