October 2020: Maidentrip
Laura Dekker wants to be the youngest person to sail around the world single-handed; aged just 14.
She's been sailing pretty much all of her life; Dekker's first 5 years were spent with her parents at sea, and she's owned several sail boats (all named Guppy).
When she first declares she'd like to sail around the world, the Child Welfare Office become involved, and for a while she is placed into shared custody with the Council for Child Care, who stop her departure.
After a legal battle, Dekker is able to finally set sail for the main event; sailing Guppy around the world. Join her on this fascinating journey...you can find it on Netflix and the trailer is below.
