Jessica Watson, youngest solo around the world.

A big heads-up for the web site of 15 year old Jessica Watson, youngest round.

Jessica is setting out to become the youngest person to sail solo non-stop and un-assisted around the World. Australian Jesse Martin set the current record in 1999. Jessica maintains a blog, where her progress can be followed.

I wish her all the luck and fair winds to complete this fantastic journey!

    i really admire J. Watson courage and determination to break the record of being the youngest sailor ……. All the best of luck and Godspeed.

    However, In my own humble opinion, I think she should take into consideration the valuable advise of Andrew Cape – Whitbread/Volvo Ocean Race veteran.
