Jessica Watson: Youngest solo circumnavigator in history of sailing
Play • 1 hr 2 min

We catch up with Jessica Watson, 6 years after completing her sailing voyage as the youngest person ever to sail non-stop, unassisted around the world in her S&S 34 ‘Ella’s Pink Lady’. 

We talk with Jessica about her pre-departure fears; how she dealt with the extreme weather she faced on her trip, life on land after her sailing voyage and her new tech venture in the marine industry and where her future passion in sailing lies.

Andy Lamont (from Episodes 2 & 3) joins the interview and gets some first hand advice from Jessica for his upcoming westward bound sailing circumnavigation in an S&S 34, departing Oct 2016.​
