Teen sailor Jessica Watson is presented with flowers as she arrives back home in Sydney following her world record attempt to become the youngest person to sail solo, non-stop and unassisted around the world, in Sydney Harbour on May 15, 2010 in Sydney, Australia. The 16-year old set out in October last year to break the record held by fellow Australian Jesse Martin, but there remains doubt from the World Speed Sailing Record Council (the official record body) as to whether she sailed far enough north of the equator to claim the world record.

These are the role models for our younger generation! I am so impressed and inspired by the guts, determination, bravery and sheer audacity to reach beyond, dream big, go for it and have no fear. It is incredible and these are the types of kids our kids should be looking up to! Go big THEN go home!
