Youngest person to sail solo around the world-Laura Dekker

laura-dekkerShe’s just thirteen, her blog is set, the day counter as well and says she’s ready to go… She’s going to start her journey on the first of September 2009.

What she wants is to bee the youngest solo circumnavigator  ever and her parents think it is a great idea. Well, there are certainly a lot of things to consider if you are looking at circumnavigating the globe just on your own.  True,  she is born on a yacht and has naturally more experience than average kids.  The  Council for Child Protection in Netherland is trying to halt the trip by asking the court to grant temporary custody since Laura’s parents refuse to do so.

Dutch authorities have to give permissions if Laura if allowed to sail to teach herself while at sea or in port but home schooling must be supervised by an adult.

Her Yacht is 26-foot (8-meter) boat, named  Guppy.

The 17-year-old Zac Sunderland from Thousand Oaks, California, grabbed the youngest solo record last month when he completed a 28,000-mile trip on his 36-foot (11-meter) boat in 13 months.

British sailor Mike Perham, who is a few months younger than Sunderland, is expected to snatch that record away when he completes his own round-the-world voyage in the coming days, docking in the southern English city of Portsmouth.

What kind of competition is going on here?
