Our Australian teenage sailor – Jessica Watson has started sharing some of her experiences on the water during her trip around the world in a little pink boat.

A combination of her blog posts and some auto-biographical information about her childhood dreams and intense focus have been compiled to create the book “True Spirit”. The book will be available in bookstores from Thursday, the 29th of July, 2010.

Having battled dyslexia as a child (and she still does), sheer determination and tenacity came together to make her dreams a reality.

I watched her come home into Sydney Harbor, then again coming home into Mooloolaba harbor and it is wonderful to see the way Australians have gotten behind the idea that anyone can achieve if they want to work hard and stay focused.

The conditions she endured in her travels around the world would give most people nightmares, and sometimes, she said, they did.
