Laura Dekker Sails!
Fourteen-year-old Laura Dekker may soon be the youngest person to sail solo around the world! As many of you know, the Dutch government tried to prevent Laura from living her dream. (And let's be honest, it is pretty darn risky.) For months she was forced to live under the guardianship of Dutch child protective agencies. But now she's free, and her boat, the Guppy, set sail from Gibraltar on Saturday!
You can read more here, and FOLLOW THE GUPPY on its way around the world on Laura's website!
Bon voyage, Laura! The Irregulars are with you in spirit!
Thanks to everyone who sent me links and updates on Laura!
