Product Description

There is something different about adventurers; about the way their minds work. They look at the world as a place of challenges and though they know what fear is, they refuse to be hindered by it.

TRUE SPIRIT is Jessica's story and in it she will detail her preparation, her journey and her battle with sleep deprivation, gale-force winds, mountainous seas, natural hazards like whales and icebergs and holding firm against the solitude that most of us can only imagine dealing with alone on a vast sea with no land to be seen and no help close at hand.

The name Jessica Watson will soon be part of sailing history. She will join Jesse Martin and Kay Cottee as someone all Australians can be inspired by. Jessica Watson is a dreamer who dares to do.

About the Author

Jessica Watson is an Australian school girl and keen sailor.

Industry Reviews


Very interesting so far


I didn't realise how much work Jess and her crew put into achieving this goal. She's about to sail off on her second attempt and I can't put it down.
