The Kevin Fischer "Whippersnapper Hall of Fame"- Inductee #15

Whippersnapper Hall of Fame


Previous inductees have predominantly 
been writers. I am expanding my list of honorees to include any deserving young individuals that have achieved outstanding accomplishments.

16-year old Jessica Watson.






The name 'Jessica' is seen in sky writing as teen sailor Jessica Watson arrives back home in Sydney following her world record attempt to become the youngest person to sail solo, non-stop and unassisted around the world, in Sydney Harbour on May 15, 2010 in Sydney, Australia. The 16-year old set out in October last year to break the record held by fellow Australian Jesse Martin, but there remains doubt from the World Speed Sailing Record Council (the official record body) as to whether she sailed far enough north of the equator to claim the world record.

Watson, from Buderim, Queensland, sailed out of Sydney on Oct. 18, despite protests from critics who said the trek was far too treacherous for someone so young. (AP Photo/Rob Griffith)
