Laura Dekker - Galapagos to Marquesas

I don't know who took this picture and I hope they don't mind me posting it here but it is sooo beautiful I just had to share it.

With a heavy heart upon leaving the "most extraordinary" Galapagos Islands and the people she met there, Laura and Guppy set sail today for the Marquesas Islands.

The distance between the Galapagos and the Marquesas is approximately 3,000 miles which would make it the longest leg of Laura and Guppy's epic voyage of adventure.


  1. What a great picture, Sam. It reminds me of the fantastic sunsets that I would see from my commercial fishing boat off of the west coast of the US many year ago. Those were the best times of my life, so it's great to see a young person like Laura enjoying such great experiences.


  2. Yes it is a great sunrise shot, isn't it? I've crossed the Indian Ocean twice and sailed into the sunset every evening, some of which looked much like that...sitting at the bow...best times, alright!

    Hope you're well.

  3. That's Mother Nature's work! And of course who-ever took the shot as Laura and Guppy got under way from the Galapagos.
