“A 12-year-old boy from France has broken the record for crossing the English Channel in a small children’s sailing dinghy.

Schoolboy Tom Goron cast off from the Isle of Wight at 5:00 on Wednesday and arrived in France 14 hours and 20 minutes later.

Impressively, he smashed the previous record set by Violette Dorange, 15, in 2016 by 36 minutes.”

Well done Tom! More kids should be encouraged to take risks …”

My goodness!…Is that twelve year old boy celebrating, by drinking Champaign?…a beverage containing alcohol?…

Oh dear…

…Certain Americans might get triggered.

    “…Certain Americans might get triggered.”

    That is a risk we shall just have to take.

    There is no prohibition on alcohol consumption in France, and at main family meal times children tend to be offered wine to drink. Pas de problème!

      Oh…I’m aware…which was the inspiration of the comment. 😉

      We have a plague of puritans here in the U.S…they freak out, over such things…

      …They’re just so mentally feeble.

      Moderate consumption of alcohol hurts nobody, so long as they’re of typical good health.
