Jessica Watson - Rounds Cape Horn

This graphic is a tribute to Jessica, Ella's Pink Lady and the entire support team on behalf of all the bloggers following her voyage of adventure from all corners of the globe. We are all so very proud of her.

At 2040hrs (AEDT) today, 13th January 2010, Jessica Watson rounded Cape Horn. Hooray and congratulations on a job well done!

Jessica and Ella's Pink Lady have been sailing in 40 knot winds, mist, drizzle and a bumpy 4 metre sea over the last 24 hours and have risen to the challenge remarkably well.

The uncomfortable weather conditions are predicted to abate tomorrow as they progress in a more north easterly course towards the Falkland Islands.


  1. Jessica rounding the Horn has had me jubilant all day! What an amazing achievement.

    THX for all your encouraging words to her. 'Think her blog-family is encouraged by you also. ....I enjoy your writing, plus now I enjoy your clip-art. You are extremely creative! 'Always enjoy seeing your new creations. Keep it up!

  2. Great art... and where there is art there are critics.

    Jessica always signs her posts as "Jesse", which makes me think she likes to spell her name with an "E" on the end & NOT "Jess"

  3. I like this artwork very much! But you must adjust the date, since Jessica is faster in heavy wind (because she's tougher) than her shore team thought. Show the banner that was published on

    Hi Samurai,
    Ahh the critics,LOL....All good artists must endure them. (Ducks back). This is one of my favorites. So much in and nicely done, when you follow someone as closely as we have you understand each little item that is added. The chopper, EPL,and all her friends she met along the way. I got a lot of enjoyment from this one.
    Thank you,

  5. Hi Samurai,

    Jesse rounding Cape Horn is a special event worth commemorating! You could make that graphic into a great T-shirt!

    Great Job!
