Laura Dekker



At 14 Laura started from Gibraltar for her maiden voyage. January 2012 Laura has reached after 27.000 mijl the Island of Sint Maarten to complete her circumnavigation after her departure there from Sint Maarten on January 2011.

Laura is the youngest sailor ever who sailed solo around the globe!

After completing her world voyage, Laura has continued to write her blog while traveling the Pacific Ocean for the second time. Having covered a total of 36,000 nm with her boat Guppy, Laura arrived at 16yo in her birthplace of Whangarei New Zealand on September 2, 2012.

Laura now lives in her birth country New zealand again, doing yacht deliveries, learns for her captains license and gives presentations about her journey. She still lives on board her beloved Boat Guppy.
