LONDON, November 17th, 2008.
MIKE Perham departed Portsmouth on Saturday morning as he set sail for the official starting line at Lizard Point in TotallyMoney.com.
Hundreds of well-wishers turned out to bid Mike farewell and show their support for his attempt to become the youngest person to sail solo around the world.
It was an emotional morning for Mike and his family, as they said their goodbyes for what would be a challenging four month adventure for the 16 year old. Mike could barely conceal his excitement in an earlier interview, saying he could hardly believe that the day had finally arrived after months of preparation and training.
Mike will spend the night in Falmouth, Cornwall with his father Peter before crossing the starting point off Lizard Point – the official setting off point for round-the-world sailing endeavors in Britain.
Media Ingenuity wish Mike all the best for his journey, and will be following his progress on the sailmike website with great interest.
