Laura the brave

Kudos to Dutch teen sailor Laura Dekker who docked 
her boat 'Guppy' in Simpson Bay Marina in St. Maarten 
yesterday after the yearlong voyage that made her 
the youngest person ever to sail alone around the world.
Born on a boat in Whangarei harbor, New Zealand, Laura
has always dreamed of sailing but she proved to be much
more than a dreamer: she's the lionhearted young woman
who fought rules and regulations as well high seas and
heavy winds. ”I learned so much about myself along the
way...” she writes on her blog modestly neglecting 
how much she's able to teach us all. Brava Laura!
