210 Days – Around The World With Jessica Watson

On 15 May 2010 at just 16 years of age, Jessica sailed into Sydney Harbour becoming the youngest person to sail solo, non-stop and unassisted around the world. Sailing more than 24,000 nautical miles in 210 days, Jessica had to overcome much adversity to achieve her dream – she battled sleep deprivation, gale force winds, mountainous seas and solitude, before stopping the nation and attracting massive global coverage when she sailed back into Sydney. 210 Days captures all of her journey and her meticulous preparation prior to departing.

Andrew Fraser was Executive Producer on this inspiring documentary, he is also Jessica’s manager and was Event Director for her epic homecoming event which was watched by millions across every TV network in Australia and an estimated 100,000 people around Sydney Harbour- it was voted Australia’s Favourite Event of 2010.

Narrated by Sir Richard Branson, 210 Days aired in Australia on Network Ten and has also been sold globally into ten territories by our international distribution partners, Fremantle Media.
