It's been a while since we had an update on those crazy sailing kids, but this past Sunday, October 18th, Jessica Watson began her try at becoming the youngest to solo sail, nonstop, around the world. If she succeeds, the 16-year-old Australian will beat Mike Perham for the title. You can follow Jessica's progress on her blog, which has already been updated since she left.
