Rachel – Day 93

The News: 16-Year-Old Girl Sails Around The World On Her Own. For 210 days Jessica Watson, an Australian, sailed around the world in her pink boat called The Pink Lady.  Yesterday her journey ended as she returned home to Australia welcomed by hundreds of other boats and tens of thousands of people. She claims to be the youngest sailor to achieve this feat nonstop and unassisted.  Her journey took her 7 months, all of which she had no contact with people.  This  had been a long-time dream for Watson, she set out to do it and she accomplished her dream!

My Comments: Um, uh, wow! I don’t know if I’ve ever mentioned that my greatest fear EVER is the ocean and being in the middle of it alone. This girl is a champ, imagine the confidence you must have to attempt something like this. She must have really known her turf well. You couldn’t pay me enough to do what she did, I would NEVER ever want to do that. I’m equally impressed and inspired!
