Second Screening For Maidentrip Documentary

September 15, 2019

The Bermuda Underwater Exploration Institute [BUEI] Film Series will be holding a repeat screening of the riveting 2014 documentary Maidentrip on September 18 following a sold-out show earlier this year.

Maidentrip celebrates the accomplishments of the intrepid young woman Laura Dekker and brings her complex and inspiring real-life story to the big screen.

In 1995 Laura Dekker was born on a boat in the port of Whangarei, New Zealand during her parents’ seven-year voyage around the world on their sailboat.

At just six years of age, Laura sailed her own dinghy alone across the lake where she lived. At the age of ten, she took a multi-week trip to Friesland, Netherlands accompanied only by her dog Spot.

Then, in 2009, at the age of 13 Laura announced her plans to sail solo around the globe. After a year-long court battle with Dutch authorities who attempted to stop her voyage and the unwanted global media scrutiny it sparked, 14-year-old Laura Dekker finally set out-camera in hand-on a two-year solo voyage in pursuit of her dream, alone without a follow boat or a support team, on her transformative 27,000 mile global odyssey.

Tickets available by calling 294-0204 or visiting the BUEI’s Oceans Gift Shop. The cost is $15 for adults, $12 for students.

The film starts at 7:30 pm.

    This girl is amazing, to cross oceans and circumnavigate the globe alone at the age of 14 seems unbelievable but she was obviously born to sail.
