Couple and 3-year-old daughter sail round world

A British husband and American wife plan sail around the world with their three-year-old daughter in tow. Despite critics, the couple has said the dangers are no greater than those posed “on the school run.”

Kim Brown, 39, and her husband Simon, 47, will be sailing in a 56-foot Oyster 575 sloop
from Gibraltar to sail around the Mediterranean before making the 3,000-mile Atlantic crossing in November to reach the Caribbean.

They plan to educate their daughter, Sienna, during their travels and say their yacht, Britican, will be stocked with medical supplies in case of an emergency.
