Laura Dekker - Happy Birthday

Laura Dekker sailed to England alone when she was 13 and 6 months later she got the idea to sail around the world. So she started to prepare for her voyage and a year later she left.

She and Guppy are now in Darwin with her father who came over to celebrate her 16th birthday together. They are in the process of preparing Guppy for the next leg of their voyage and the plan is to set off on September 24. At this stage Laura has no firm plans as to where her next stop will be.


  1. Very nice tribute to Laura on her 16th birthday!!! You're still creating lovely memories aren't you!!!! What a talent!!!

    Hope you are well,

    Carol Florida U.S.A.
