I found this hot pink t-shirt in a bargain bin in a men's shop, as you do. Not that there's anything wrong with it, only that it's not a colour most men would buy, I suppose.
It would make for a nice contrast, I thought.
This one is exactly the same as the one I gave to Jessica's mum Julie when I met her here in perth recently.
Sadly, there are still an incredible number of people choosing to keep their heads buried in the sand about Jessica's achievements but as far as I'm concerned Jessica, at the age of 16, spent the best part of the last 7 months at sea sailing solo, non-stop and unassisted around the world.
Jessica and Ella's Pink Lady set sail from Sydney Harbour on 18th October 2009 and crossed the equator into the northern hemisphere, passed all lines of longitude and rounded 4 southern capes namely Cape Horn, Cape of Good Hope, Cape Leeuwin and Tasmania's South East Cape before ending their circumnavigation at the same port where they started, 3 days shy of Jessica's 17th birthday.
Jessica successfully achieved what she set out to do in fulfilling her ambition and ultimately realising her childhood dream! There is nothing any naysayer can say or do to diminish such an incredible accomplishment nor dampen her pride and sense of achievement.
