Here's what I posted on another site a week or so ago:

Jessica Watson has assembled the youngest crew ever to compete in the Sydney to Hobart yacht race. The sailors from Australia and the United Kingdom range in age from 17 to 21 and the team has already begun training for the December 26 race.

At the time, I believed they were planning to compete amongst the small fleet of Sydney 38's - but haven't seen anything either way since.


EDIT: She's only crewing on the Bavaria - it's someone else's boat - whereas the Sydney-Hobart event is something entirely different:
