Abby Sunderland sailed into a storm Thursday in the Southern Indian Ocean, when she lost contact with her family.
Zac Sunderland, Abby’s brother was the youngest person to sail around the world. And Abby Sunderland is following the footsteps of her brother. Abby Sunderland was trying to become the youngest person to sail solo around the world. She started sailing last January 23, 2010 on her 40-foot racing yacht, named Wild Eyes.
She then signaled emergency beacon location devices when Abby Sunderland lost contact with her family on Thursday afternoon.
Let us all pray for Abby Sunderland’s safety.
