Jessica's Trial Run Collision

Jessica Watson's trial sail to Sydney was severely hampered this morning at 2am when her 34 foot boat was involved in a collision with a 63,000 ton freighter. This apparently left the yacht's hull with some minor damage and broke the mast. Jessica diverted to a nearby port for repairs and plans to continue on to Sydney in preparation for her circumnavigation.

There is a story in the Times Online and another at TVNZ.
