Australian teen completes round-the-world sail

** FILE ** In this file photo from Oct. 18, 2009, teenage sailor Jessica Watson walks to her boat after her final shower on land as she prepares to depart Sydney on her boat Ella's Pink Lady in an attempt to become the youngest person to sail non-stop, solo and unassisted, around the world. Thousands are expected to line Sydney Harbour on Saturday, May 15, 2010, to offer a hero's welcome to 16-year-old Jessica Watson, who has battled 40-foot (12-meter) waves, multiple knockdowns and critics who called her too immature and inexperienced for the treacherous journey.
