The Gold Coast North Chamber of Commerce has announced Jessica Watson OAM as the guest speaker for their special ‘Boat Show Breakfast’ on Friday, May 26 from 7am to 9am at the Sanctuary Cove Golf & Country Club.
Jessica will provide insight into what it takes to sail solo non-stop and unassisted around the world – an extraordinary performance by any means made more incredible considering she was just 16 years of age.
Defying criticism from those who said her task was destined to fail, after 210 days at sea navigating some of the world’s most challenging stretches of oceans and surviving seven knockdowns, Jessica sailed back into Sydney Harbour on May 15, 2010.
She is an inspiring story that ultimately proves that we all have the power to live our dreams, no matter how small or big they are.
The breakfast is followed by complimentary entry into SCIBS. Tickets are $45 for members and $60 for non-members and are now on sale from goldcoastnorth.cciq.com.au
