ooh cool- I'll definitely check the film out.... we met her in the French Marquesas 3 years ago, she was out again cruising with her boyfriend, on the way to New Zealand iirc.

Just watched it now. Absolutely brilliant...astounding achievement. And lovely the way the film brought to life the emotions and past that essentially drove her to make the journey. And a journey in the literal and metaphorical sense.

Would recommend it to everyone

Watched it last night and really enjoyed it. Apart from her sailing ability she filmed it very well.

Just watched it. A great film and an inspiring young lady beyond her years. I have two daughters and two grand daughters and the thought of any of them setting off as a young teenager in a sailing boat to go around the globe would be terrifying for the family!

Thanks for the tip. Watched it last night.

Great story and film. Have huge admiration for her and what she did....would I let my daughter do that - no way.

Another good Netflix film is 180 degrees South

Some sailing in this prior to climbing in Patagonia - another great adventure to watch

Finished watching last night (while doing the ironing :eek:)... I was impressed by the (apparent) honesty of the emotions expressed. My daughter turned 12 last month... her relationship with her parents made me think....
