After 210 days at sea navigating some of the world's most challenging oceans and surviving seven knockdowns, Jessica Watson sailed triumphantly into Sydney Harbour in May 2010. At 16 she became the youngest person to sail solo non-stop and unassisted around the world. In December 2011, Jessica skippered the youngest crew to ever compete in the iconic Sydney to Hobart yacht race, finishing second in their category. She was named Young Australian of the Year 2011. And in January 2012, Jessica was announced in the Australia Day Honours list, receiving an OAM (Order of Australia Medal) for services to sailing and being a role model for the youth of Australia. Jessica completed an MBA in 2017, she is a partner in marine startup Deckee, an ambassador for Mobile Travel Agents, and is a Youth Representative for the United Nations World Food Programme. Jessica's #1 bestselling memoir, True Spirit, was released in 2010 and her novel, Indigo Blue, will be published in 2018.
