Jessica Watson - Breathtaking achievement.
This is an expression of joyous elation... the feeling shared by everyone around the world but most especially by Jessica herself, having achieved such a monumental milestone. It takes your breath away!
Jessica Watson and Ella's Pink Lady have not only conquered Cape Horn and carved their names into our history books but they have achieved another milestone and broken two other records in the process.
They have sailed in excess of 10,000nm since departing Sydney on 18th October 2010. Another milestone done and dusted! Well done and congratulations also to Bob, Andrew and the rest of the EPL team.
Jessica is now the record holder for the youngest ever solo sailor to have rounded Cape Horn.
And.......drum roll please.....smashed the record with 1,000+ comments for a single post on her blog!
CONGRATULATIONS Jessica, Ella's Pink Lady and the entire support team on a job well done!
