Mike Perham becomes youngest round the world sailor

LONDON, September 4th, 2009.

MIKE Perham has broken the record for the youngest person to sail solo around the world. Mike’s 50ft yacht, TotallyMoney.com, crossed the finish line off the Cornish coast marking the end of his epic 30,000 mile, nine month voyage at 09:47:30am. Mike, at 17, is two months younger than American Zac Sutherland who holds the current record.

Mike said: “I’ve made it, I’ve made my dream come true and it feels amazing. A BIG BIG thanks to my Dad, Mum, all the sponsors and everyone who has helped me along the way.”

TotallyMoney.com was the principle sponsor and Sailmike.com had this to say: “Without Totally Money coming on board to take us up to a 75% funding position this project would not have got off the drawing board.”
