They did try to tell me I wasn't cut out for journalism. Or coding.

#2 Should said yacht encounter problems at sea, the US Navy should send the USS Constitution to the rescue with a large kite to airlift the passengers to safety.

#5 Taking a sailboat to the US is difficult. Of course, it used to be common until 100 years or so ago.

Any boat or ship crossing the ocean spews out an enormous amount of CO2, unless it is powered by wind.

#8 Grunta, how many tons of carbon did it take to build the racing boat Malizia II ?

Another short want to be troll idiot pc proving once again, Swedes are basically Norwegians with their brains removed and zero spine.

By the way, "Thun" basically is a fancy spelling of the old Norse "Tun" meaning some who lived by a fenced yard. Yeah, great lineage there toaster girl.

Then again maybe she is fleeing the muslim rape gangs in Sweden.

#9  Grunta, how many tons of carbon did it take to build the racing boat Malizia II ?

It's not just the raw materials. It's exotic fiber-reinforced composites for the hull, synthetic fiber and fabric for sails and rope, metal mining and fabrication for fittings, and let's not forget the computers to run the CAD/CAM software used to design the boat and whatever testing simulations. Since we've got computers, we need electricity and a way to generate and transmit it. It's probably got a GPS on board, so we need some rockets and a satellite constellation.

In short, to build a boat like that, you need to invent Western Civilization.
