Board MembersLaura Dekker - founder & captain
Having only lived one year of her life in a house, Laura’s first nature are boats and water. At the age of 14 she set off on a journey to sail solo around the world, which she successfully completed at age 16 making her the youngest person to ever complete such a voyage. Besides the ocean and sailing Laura loves sharing her experiences and passions especially with the new generation. She welcomes new challenges openly and jumps on any adventure (land or sea based) she can get. In her quiet time Laura enjoys reading, playing the guitar and her beloved violin which she has dragged around the world several times.

Sander Vogelenzang, Sailor, Boat builderAged 11 Sander decided he wanted to have a mini 6.50. A little boat, but very fast and seaworthy making them extremely expensive. Nevertheless this didn't stop him, with 17 the drawings for his own boat were ready and he successfully build his own prototype mini 6.50. Now he works as a professional boat builder, sails as much as possible and of course still loves to jump on every big challenge that comes along.
