This is a Dutch TV interview with Laura Dekker. Her ship just left the Cape Verde islands, intending to cross the Atlantic, and then sail all around the world, with just Laura on board. In the interview, Ms Dekker says she hopes to see dolphins in the Atlantic.

Laura Dekker is fifteen years old. If her plans succeed, then she will become the youngest sailor ever to circumnavigate the world alone.
