Australian teenager Jessica Watson can add the gruelling and often dangerous Sydney to Hobart yacht race to her list of sailing accomplishments.

The 18-year-old, who last year became the youngest person to sail around the world solo, nonstop and unassisted, finished 37th of 88 starters yesterday.

Watson completed the race in four days, two hours and 12 minutes, nearly two days behind the winning yacht, Investec Loyal.
