Jessica Watson get home safe and sound

The Australian, 16-year-old, Jessica Watson just finished her solo sailing around the world, nonstop and unassisted. Yesterday she finally arrived in Sydney, her home port, after 210 days and more than 23.000 nautical miles sailing.

She have chosen a route that is a traditionally recognized path and distance for ‘around the world sailors’. As this is a Southern Hemisphere voyage the significant landmarks are the southern tips of the American and African continents, as well as some of the most challenging oceans a sailor will ever face.

Congratulations Jessica !

Check her Route:

  • Departing from Sydney, heading to North to the Line Island,
  • South to Chile and Cape Horn,
  • Cape Horn to Cape of Good Hope,
  • Rounding South Africa,
  • Southern Ocean back to Sydney.

About the Author:

Sail Buffalo

The Sail Buffalo project entails the transformation of an abandoned inlet into a Community Boating Center that provides public access to Buffalo’s waterfront. We are an accredited sailing school with a mission to create an exciting safe and secure facility on Buffalo’s Outer Harbor, enabling public access to the waterfront through boating, wellness and environmental programming. Our goal is to provide a destination for on-the-water training, holistic learning experiences, wellness and environmental education regardless of income, gender and age, including people with disabilities, and to provide a safe-haven for young veterans and their families.

Our History

Being on the water is a truly transformative experience. After the launch of our unique Eco Floating Classroom 2011, and after merging with Cazenovia Community Resource Center (501-C-3) during 2012, we have finally found an ideal location at 2 Fuhrmann Blvd by the USCG, and created a true Community Boating Center!
