Not sure how high they stack containers, but at two high USA 17 is taking the space of 100 boxes. Traveling now from Valencia to San Francisco, but don't expect to see 17 sailing until Summer 2012.

It seems like just yesterday when we were berating those that allowed then 16 year old Jessica Watson (AUS) to sail solo around the world. Now the Australian Government last week awarded her the honour of being declared ‘Young Australian of the Year’, and the next day she went out with the Australian 18 Footers Leaguers. She has come a long way, baby. Photos courtesy of Ella Bache and Frank Quealey/
