June 2011


Jenny Watson grew up in small-town New Zealand, dreaming of big adventures in faraway places. When she was 18, she spent a year as an exchange student in Thailand, where she learned to speak a little Thai (nit noi) and to eat curry and sticky rice with her fingers. After returning to New Zealand to earn a Master’s degree in psychology, she moved to San Diego and trained to be a technical writer. Now Jenny and her husband make their home in Victoria, B.C. They grab every opportunity they can to go sailing with friends until they launch their very own plywood sailing dinghy.
