Take Two from Down Under

sydney dust stormsAs Australia recovers from its strange dust storm that turned the sky various shades of red, orange and yellow, and put a strangle hold on Sydney for a day, one of the country's bravest daughters is about to take a second stab at an historic journey. You can see that Jessica Watson of Sunshine Coast, Queensland, is someone who knows exactly what she wants by the straightforward statement on her blog: "Ambition: Become the youngest person to sail solo, nonstop and unassisted around the world"

Jessica is tying up the final loose ends to prepare herself and Ella's Pink Lady for the adventure of a lifetime, I invite you to post a comment here or on her blog to let her know that she may be solo but she won’t be alone.
