Round-the-world girl sailor on home stretch

What next? Your 16 and already solo'd around the world... "SYDNEY — An Australian schoolgirl bidding to become the youngest person to sail solo around the world hit the home stretch Wednesday, passing South Africa's Cape of Good Hope for her final Indian Ocean leg.

Jessica Watson passed the Cape, a rocky headland near the point where the Atlantic and Indian Oceans meet, shortly after midnight GMT, marking the last landmark of her journey before she returns to Australia."
