Jessica Watson: The Sailor’s Favourite Things
Australian sailor Jessica Watson can’t live without her MUSTO sailing boots:
‘Sea Boots: These went around the world with me and kept my feet warm and dry. They’re the best boots a sailor can have; it’s horrible to have cold feet while you’re at sea.’
It’s been three years since her record-breaking round-the-world voyage, but Jessica Watson’s passion for sailing shows no sign of waning. “It’s pretty special because no two days on the water are the same,” the 19-year-old says. After skippering a crew in last year’s Sydney to Hobart Yacht Race, Watson has turned her attention to sailing smaller boats for fun. “Everyone asks what I am doing next, but I’m just looking forward to more casual sailing on my skiff over summer.”
Meanwhile, her 2010 autobiography, True Spirit, is being turned into a movie. “It’s exciting, but it’s going to be weird to see someone else acting out scenes from my life,” she laughs.

This is the ultimate choice for the offshore sailor which provides warmth and protection that is second to none.
