Seems like a lucky girl with great connections and parents with great marketing skills to conjure up
"Still seeking a naming sponsor for her voyage, Jessica has enjoyed early support from Australian
adventurers Don and Margie McIntyre who are full of praise for the 15 year old sailor. The
McIntyre's, from Tasmania, are well known for their sailing and Antarctic expeditions (Don has
sailed solo around the world) and have purchased the yacht for Jessica and provided much of the
equipment she will use."

This is precisely the point Woger.
She made the trip with enough equipment to ensure that the risks were at an
absolute minimum. It was *calculated*. She wasn't setting off throwing
caution to the wind and relying soley on her boating skills to see her

All I've been saying all along here Woger is that her "voyage", as epic as
it was, need to be put into *perspective*. I've said before and will say so
again it wasn't a walk in the park and she no doubt faced some issues, but
the carry on both here and in the media makes it sound like she spent 7
months in a concentration camp.
She was sailing a *Yacht* Woger. Not every single minute of the day would
have been unpleasant :)
