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.

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.
