Description: One of my favorite quotes ever comes from one of Laura’s sailing heroes, Bernard Moitessier, the legendary Frenchman who participated in the first singlehanded race around the world in the late sixties. Non-stop. Back then, ship to shore communications were primitive, and when he passed Cape Horn and was about to head back north to the finish line, he had no idea he was in first place. What he did know was that he wasn’t ready to face life ashore in northern Europe, and so he made the famous decision to continue sailing west
back to Polynesia. Off the Cape of Good Hope, he used a slingshot to fire a message home onto the deck of a tanker: ‘I am continuing non-stop towards the Pacific Islands because I am happy at sea, and perhaps also, to save my soul. Laura and I are not his only fans. This quote resonated with decades of sailors who wanted to escape the industrial machine and surged south to tropical climates on boats, to catch rainwater, eat fish, rice and bananas, navigate by sun and stars. It was a simple, healthy life that beckoned to many a kindred spirit troubled by the demands of civilisation, and more than 40 years later, one young lady had to fight long and hard for her right to join these ranks and happily sail around the world. And, when Laura Dekker finally broke free to busily prove all the naysayers wrong, I cheered her on.-How it all began? I am Laura and I was born in Whangarei, New Zealand. My parents were sailing around the world at the time and had been in New Zealand for two years. I became the youngest member of the crew when we made our way to Australia. They wanted to take their time to see as much of the world as possible. My sister Kim was born three years after me, and our 12-metre yacht eventually became too cramped for a family with two little girls. So we sailed back to the Netherlands where we moved into a real house for the first time. My parents’ journey had taken them seven years, and it was hard for Dad to live on firm land. He immediately started on the construction of an even bigger boat: a 20-metre, seaworthy Norwegian fishing cutter with enough room for everyone. Unfortunately, my parents’ marriage broke up and, at the age of six, I chose to stay with my father. We lived in a caravan for some time while he worked on the new boat.
Additional info: If you want to see the other side of the world, you can do two things: turn the world upside down or travel there yourself.
