Jessica Watson a 16 year old schoolgirl from Queensland Australia set of 6 months ago to sail around the world single handedly and solo is now set to be the youngest ever person to complete this event. When she sails into Sydney Harbour in a few hours time
apaprently it will be televised around Australia by all television channels 'live' a first(1st) in Australia.
Waton walks towards the opera house to meet the Prime Minister Kevin Rudd & Premier
It's an a-maaazing spectacle. A whole flotilla of wellwisher boats accompanied her into the harbour. When she got off the boat she was all wobbly with sea-legs and the whole foreshore is covered with people.
Good on her.
She is an inspiration to more than a nation, teenagers and adults around the world.
I watched the coverage of her sailing into Sydney harbor and her stepping foot on land after seven months. What an mammoth achievement. It certainly makes me look at what I have/have not achieved in my life.
Thank you Jessica Watson.
I love this generation! Jessica Watson has a wonderful spirit and plenty of courage. A great example of today's youth!
Some kids will do ANYTHING to get off school !!!
Excellent spirit - and congrats to her and the society that made her possible
Aah Barry - sorry I didn't see your post before I posted mine. Isn't she is inspirational?!
