This is a picture Jessica took of herself as she was rounding Cape Horn and I thought it showed her in a very reflective mood.
On Thursday 21st January 2010, Jessica Watson experienced a violent storm overnight with wind gusts of up to 70 knots and a swell of 7-10 metres, in the middle of the Atlantic Ocean.
Despite the horrific conditions and some minor damage, the good news is that both Jessica and Ella’s Pink Lady have fared well.
The winds have now abated and the dolphins have returned. She is sailing along in more pleasant conditions with a 10 knot breeze and a 3 metre swell.
Jessica is now cleaning up all the mess topside and is about to catch up on some sleep.
