Today after meeting my fellow Sydney Bloggers, I decided to catch a ferry across the harbour. Amazingly it went past this following flotilla. There were hundreds of vessels following a pink yacht which belonged to a 16 year old sailor Jessica Watson. According to the news 'SOLO sailor Jessica Watson, 16, was greeted by tens of thousands of cheering Sydneysiders as she completed her historic bid to be the youngest person to sail non-stop around the world alone and unassisted.' Not a bad effort - I can hardly remember what I was doing when I was 16 (probably thinking about girls and listening to the rolling stones on my cassette recorder) but I am not sure that I could have done this.
