Across the Line

Not much in the way of boat shows this weekend, but there is one ongoing boating event that we can't get enough of.

Teen sailor Jessica Watson has achieved a major milestone in her quest to become the youngest person to sail around the world non-stop without assistance. It was announced this morning on her website that Ella's Pink Lady has crossed the equator, a little over a month after setting sail from Sydney.

How did she celebrate? Well, Jessica states on her blog that she marked the occasion by eating slightly melted chocolate and taking part in the traditional salt water dumping for first time crossers, of course. How else would you celebrate?
