Jessica Watson - 11,000nm in her wake
This sign was erected in Jessica's honour on behalf of all bloggers from around the world who are so very proud of her.
Keep up the good work, Jessica and Ella's Pink Lady & Team.
Congratulations Jessica, Ella's Pink Lady and the entire Support Team on passing the 11,000nm mark of your circumnavigation. Well done also on weathering the storm you encountered in the process.
With wind gusts of up to 70-knots and up to 10-metre seas, not to mention 4 knockdowns, you rose to the challenge and passed with flying colour.
Your meticulous preparations and attention to detail paid off and you should be extremely proud of yourselves.
As the storm abates and you are once again able to relax a little, I wish you fair winds, calm seas and tight lines.
