Jessica Watson – How did she do that?

At 16 years of age Jessica Watson sailed around the world, solo, non-stop and unassisted!  

She arrived in Sydney harbour on Saturday 15th May 2010, just 210 days after leaving amidst a barrage of negative press, and doubters on the 17th October 2009.

 The day beofre her departure Jessica said “Tomorrow I am going to wake up and sail around the world.” This was her dream.  


How did she do that? When she isn’t even old enough to drive a car to the shops but she sailed 38,000 km around the world.

Because she knew exactly WHY she was doing it.

She had a clear vision of her end goal, the desire and sheer determination to succeed. She has been telling her parents since she was young that she was going to sail around the world and her bedroom wall was covered with crayon drawings of her in a yacht going around the world.

”You’ve just got to believe in it. Anything really is possible if you want it. You’ve just got to put the effort in.” Said Jessica.


I believe that during the early days with the negative press she just visualised her goal and imagined how it would feel to cross the line, what she would see, how she would feel, the smell of the harbour & the other boats welcoming her home, all of the images gave her the belief and desire to succeed. Yesterday 26th May when she met with her fans and well wishers in Brisbane she exuded confidence and looks like she will soon be off on another adventure.
