The Girl and the Ocean

A 16-year-old Australian steered her bright pink yacht out of Sydney Harbor on Sunday to start her bid to become the youngest person to sail solo and unassisted around the world.Jessica Watson's plan to make a 23,600-mile (38,000-kilometer) journey through some of the world's most treacherous waters sparked a debate in Australia about whether someone so young should be allowed to try such a potentially dangerous feat.Although she will sail solo and unassisted, she will be in constant contact with her support team via radio, e-mail and a blog."I know you are all anxious to hear from Jess, but she's a little preoccupied on her first day, so she asked me to post a quick note to let everyone know that the departure went well this morning," Julie Watson wrote on the blog.

Age of teens are time of winning the world and doing something , conquering some thing..lot adventure.....growing up with lovely earth...let be the world always like this...youthful with beauty..energetic and primarily raw..a raw earth.

Sail away Jessika..sail with your dream..all our wishes with you.
