Dutch teenager completes world solo-yacht trip

A Dutch teenager has completed a year-long solo journey around the world in a sailboat, arriving at the Carribbean island of St Maarten on board her vessel, named "Guppy". Dozens of people cheered as Laura Dekker, 16, pumped her fist into the air in celebration as she sailed past a drawbridge raised
for her arrival at the island's port on Saturday. Dekker, who says she is the youngest sailor to complete a round-the-world voyage, had set off from the same harbour on January 20, 2011. Al Jazeera's Tom Ackerman reports.
