WLJ - Day 2 Activity 2

Activity 2: As an island nation, New Zealand is completely surrounded by water. It is the perfect place for people who like to swim or to sail! While in Dargaville, recovering from your busy day of sightseeing, you notice a number sailboats going by. One of the boats is manned by a young German girl named Laura Dekker. At the age of fourteen she sailed around the world the entire world by herself. You can watch a short video clip about her adventures here: Laura Dekker sailing trip.   
Let’s imagine that you had the chance to interview Laura while in Dargaville. On your blog post five questions that you would ask her.
Questions for Laura Dekker!
  1. When did you first began to sail?
  2. What inspired you to sail?
  3. How long did it take you to sail across the world?
  4. If you didn't do sailing, what would be another hobby you would do?
  5. What is something something you really want?


  1. Hi Sarah,

    Thank you for completing Day 2 activity 2. You generated some great questions for Laura. Have you ever been out on the waters sailing or in a boat? I would love to try this one day and overcome my fears of being out on the waters. I wonder how she survived her journey all by herself. She is so strong. I can't wait to see her response if we get the chance to meet her.

    Keep up the great work Sarah!


  2. Hello Sarah
    Your questions that you would ask Laura Dekker are great. I like the first one the best, it's a great question. Keep up the amazing work.
