Mike Perham was born on 16 March 1992 and started sailing with his father Peter as a six-year-old. At the age of 14, he became the youngest person to sail solo across the Atlantic, a record that stands to this day. In November 2008, he set off on a voyage around the world, and after celebrating his seventeenth birthday en route, broke the Guinness World Record for single-handed circumnavigation. Mike's next challenge as a fully fledged adventurer is to become the youngest person to fly solo round the world.
