Jessica Watson: a brave sailor

16-year-old sailor Jessica Watson has successfully finished her 23,000 nautical mile adventure around the world.

The brave Australian teenager spent 210 days out in the sea and consumed 32 cans of spam, 64 cans of tuna, 32 cans of pineapple, 576 chocolate bars, and 290 freeze-dried ready meals on her yacht.

She is now the youngest person ever to sail solo and unassisted around the world.

In Sydney, she was welcomed by Australian Prime Minister Kevin Rudd and thousands of citizens.

"I don't consider myself a hero. I'm an ordinary girl who believed in her dream," she told everyone.

Jessica Watson wants to get back to school and learn to drive.
