Her journey is not yet done but there’s a great story building around 16-years old Jessica Watson’s goal of sailing round the world. In her own words:
Jessica Watson is setting out to become the youngest person to sail solo non-stop and unassisted around the World.
Jessica’s age, and a sailing accident at the start of the voyage, have both generated some controversy.
Such is the way with big goals; things are likely to go wrong and you will definitely attract attention (not all of it positive) from friends and strangers.
What impresses me most is her determination to succeed while enjoying the ride; a great attitude for getting through this trip we call real life.
