Fantastic to see Mike Perham complete his single-handed round-the-world voyage when his boat Totallymoney.com passed the Lizard at 09.55 this morning.
This is a quite staggering achievement for anyone, let alone a 17 year old. At a time when we only hear about the bad things teenagers do, his achievements are a huge boost.
Makes ya proud to be British, eh?
Mike is raising money for Save the Children and the Tall Ships Trust: the fund-rasing for charity hasn't been going as well as the sailing so a little bit of help might be needed.
A terribly salty little song from Sheffield… - Sung here by my friend folk song scholar Ruairidh Greig. After singing that he’s probably an expert in implausibility too…
