Come down to the Whitsunday Sailing Club and meet young sailing identity Jessica Watson. Queenslander Jessica has made a name for herself as Australia’s most famous sailing teenager and was named Young Australian of the Year in 2011.

Jessica made world headlines when she successfully sailed solo through the Southern Ocean and around the globe at the young age of 16. She returned to a hero’s welcome and is adored by the Australian public, even those who don’t sail.

Jessica will be appearing at the Whitsunday Sailing Club from 3pm - 4pm on Monday August the 13th. At 4pm she will be taking one lucky junior sailor for a sailing lesson as part of our Win a Sailing Lesson with Jessica Watson competition.
