'They don't realize what girls are capable of' - Jessica Watson

After fighting a strong southerly wind and 12-foot seas, which added an unexpected two extra hours to her journey, Jessica Watson steered the 30-foot Ella's Pink Lady across the finish line at 1.50pm, becoming the youngest person to sail solo, non-stop and unassisted around the world.

Wow.

'As a little girl people don't think you're capable of these things, they don't realise what young people, 16-year-olds and girls are capable of', she told the waiting crowds. 'But it's amazing what you can do.'

. . .After more than 200 days and 23,000 nautical miles without seeing a fellow human being, an obviously overwhelmed Miss Watson fell into the arms of her family, who were clearly relieved to see her back.

She has faced intense solitude, storms, 4-story waves and public criticism.

'You don't have to be someone special to achieve something big', she said. 'You just have to have a dream, believe in it and work hard, anything is possible.'
