Michael Perham, a 16-year-old British boy, wants to become the youngest person to sail solo around the world.

Yesterday afternoon, Michael left Portsmouth on an Open 50 racing yacht by himself and hopes to beat the world record of a solo sailing trip around the world, currently held by Australian Jesse Martin.

Michael will use an auto-pilot while he sleeps in small bursts and can stay in touch with his family through a satellite connection. If everything goes as planned, Michael hopes to be back home by his 17th birthday in March.
