Welcoming Jessica Watson

The country is abuzz about the return later today of Jessica Watson, a 16-year-old Australian girl who’s spent the last seven months sailing around the world alone. Although it looks like she’ll miss out on the world record for youngest solo circumnavigator, it’s still rightly being regarded as a phenomenal achievement. It’s going to be broadcast on TV and massive crowds are expected to welcome her to Sydney Harbour.

As part of that welcome there’s a VIP gala event at the Opera House this morning. Through a work connection we’ve been invited to that. I expect it to be a pretty big and exciting celebration.

Well done, Jessica.
