Pink Star: Jessica Watson

Sydney, New South Wales, Australia 33º49’26″S 151º18’73″E

Jessica Watson, crosses the finish line of her unassisted solo voyage around the world in her yacht Ella’s Pink Lady S&S (Sparkman and Stephens) 34 at Sydney Harbour.
One 16 year-old girl, weighing about 100 pounds, just sailed a heavy 34′ cruiser around the Southern Ocean – alone – without stopping. She stood up to rogue waves as she stood up to critics, taking the shot, rolling back upright, and continuing on her way. Her pictures and notes were always cheerful and bright, and she seems incapable of a frown, and her accomplishment blows away those 99% of the population.
