TONIGHT! ~ Laura Dekker — the youngest person to sail solo around the world!

laura_dekkerSW Charter and Wilson High School are excited to present a talk with Laura Dekker this evening Thursday, October 27th in Wilson High School’s cafeteria.

Laura Dekker will speak about following her dreams from a very young age to becoming the youngest person to sail solo around the world.  Her journey started as a toddler and led her to complete the two year, 6,000 mile trip, at the age of 16.

In order to accommodate a larger audience, we are partnering with Wilson High School. Tickets are $5 and can be purchased at the door. We hope you all will make time to attend this very special event!

To learn more Laura has written a book, One Girl One Dream, and here is a link to a trailer of a documentary, Maidentrip chronically her voyage. Also, here is a link to her website.
