After 210 days at sea, Jessica Watson's boat Ella's Pink Lady has crossed through Sydney Heads, marking the official finish line of her epic around-the-world journey.
The big moment had been delayed for more than two hours due to 4m swells and a torn mainsail. She had been due at the heads at 11.30am (AEST) but eventually made it through at about 1.50pm.
Crowds have gathered at vantage points along the harbour, while dozens of boats escorted her yacht for the final journey into the harbour.
Jessica, still just 16 years old, will now make her way to the Sydney Opera House for an official welcome home, with the Prime Minister, family and friends on hand.
