JESSICA WATSON is racing

She's going to make the Round the Island Race and next the Sydney-Hobart.

After all that circumnavigation and the investment in it will have a practical interest assuming she wants to have a racing career. I guess that it will be a lot easier of her to get some sponsors but she will need guidance. Those two races will get her publicity but for getting serious and to get experience in what she probably do best (solo sailing) she should race seriously on the minis.


Australian teenage sailing supremo Jessica Watson, who celebrates her 18th birthday in May, is crewing alongside Britain's Michael Perham, aged 19, on a Bavaria 37 called Cold Play, skippered by Phil Baughen in this year's Round the Island Race on Saturday 25th June.
Jessica has recently announced that she is to skipper a boat with the youngest ever crew to enter the Rolex Sydney Hobart Race on Boxing Day, a crew that includes Mike Perham. The Race organisers at the Island Sailing Club are looking forward to welcoming them to Cowes and to watching their progress on Race day.
