Abby Sunderland set sail to become the youngest person to travel across the globe in January 2010, when she was just 16-years-old. But unfortunately, she was hit by a storm five months that crippled her vessel in the Indian Ocean. After the incident, she lost contact with her family for almost a day and during that time, the yacht’s emergency beacons were activated.
Later, a plane from Perth spotted the teenager with her wracked boat and made contact with Abby Sunderland. Eventually, a French sailing vessel picked up Sunderland to Reunion Island, near Madagascar. Almost after eight years after the rescue of Abby, her abandoned boat has been found in the Indian Ocean during New Year’s Eve.
