"Sail the Wildest Stretch" is the third single from Golden Rule and the second-last single by alternative rock band Powderfinger.

On 15 May 2010, "Sail the Wildest Stretch" was used as the credit song to the special Australian program featured on Channel 9 titled Homecoming, of Jessica Watson's successful attempt at becoming the youngest person to sail around the world. The song's lyrics and sounds fit Jessica Watson's profile, hard work, idolism, and compassion of herself and her 7 months of sailing throughout the world. The song was featured at the end of the program when showing flashbacks of her voyage and words spoken by reporters/family.
