Who can help but love material like this:
This week Jessica Watson is at 35 South, about 18,000 nautical miles and 5 months into her journey. She is hoping to reach Sydney by the middle of May, sailing her S&S 34, also a solid, if slow, cruising yacht, which was also chosen by Jesse Martin in his successful non-stop circumnavigation. In her most recent gale she had 15-foot seas and 40 knots of wind. With her feet above her head to wedge herself into her bunk, Jessica was alternating between typing her blog, and studying for her learners' driving exam when she arrives home.

What? she wants to be allowed to drive?
