Hi. I'm Skip...

Rocket scientist...tech geek...husband...Dad. The name of my site refers to a line from my favorite movie. See my 1st blog post for more on the genesis of the name, but essentially it means don't EVER hold back.

Vincent Award #44: Laura Dekker

This week's Vincent Award goes to Laura Dekker. In 2012 Laura set out in her sailboat she named Guppy to become the youngest person to circumnavigate the globe solo. She was 14 years old. 518 days and 27,000 miles later she completed her journey. She took a camera with her on her journey and footage from that camera has been used to create a feature-length documentary called Maidentrip.

Congratulations to Laura Dekker for daring to not only dream big but to follow that dream. The documentary Maidentrip, is now available for rent via DVD by NetFlix.
