    Jessica Watson (born 18 May 1993) is an Australian sailor who gained recognition for attempting her longest solo voyage at the age of 16 years. She holds both Australian and New Zealand citizenship. She was the second of four children of New Zealand-born couple Roger and Julie Watson, who moved to Australia after her birth. He had three other siblings Emily (Elder sister), Tom (Younger brother), and Hannah (Younger sister). She has been home-schooled via distance learning with her three siblings because her parents have gone on a five-year cruise travel (Living). She also traveled at age 12, to sail around the world. She started sailing when she was only 14 years teen.
