Big Welcome for Jessica Watson
After her voyage for 201 days, Jessica Watson, the 16 years old teenager from Queensland has finally arrived. A big and warm welcome is set for her comeback. At exactly 1:53pm on 15 May 2010 (13:53:28 AEST) Watson crossed the finish line in Sydney Harbour. Her arrival is just 3 days before her 17th birthday.
She started her voyage last October 18, 2010 wherein she headed eastbound over the Pacific Ocean, Atlantic Ocean and the Indian Ocean. Watson is said to be the youngest unassisted sailor who ever sailed alone in her yacht named Ella’s Pink Lady.
She would also be writing a book about her experience, expected to be called True Spirit and published by Hachette Publishing three months after completing her journey.
A warm and big welcome has been prepared for the young lady’s success.Follow us on Twitter to get free up-to-date news via tweets from the World Correspondents, or you can subscribe to us by entering your e-mail below.
