Timor Sea crossing with Jessica Watson

Hello. I have to report that I recently did a crossing of the Timor Sea between Darwin Australia and Bali with Jessica Watson. The weather was calm and there were no incidents. She was three rows in front of me in an Airbus A330-200.

Re: Timor Sea crossing with Jessica Watson

Maybe. Hard to tell from inside the plane. I did observe though that she is tiny, but I expect mentally very tough. I recall dozing in bed in Hobart one night when she was sailing in the southern ocean south of Adelaide in a storm and the same storm crossed us. It was ferocious and I recall wondering how the hell a little girl was managing at sea. Fine, as it turned out.

Ahh... that was meant as in the expression "Nothing goes to windward as well as a 747" or in your case A330-200
