Sailing the Dream

By Mike Perham

This is the awe-inspiring story of Mike Perham, who sailed 30,000 miles around the world – alone – aged just seventeen.

More people have been in space than have sailed solo around the Earth. It is the toughest of nautical challenges. Mike Perham set out on this great adventure when he was sixteen, and achieved it at seventeen. So it is hardly surprising that Sailing the Dream was named ‘Most Inspirational Book of the Year’ at the Maritime Media Awards of 2010.

In Sailing the Dream, Mike tells the story of the incredible 30,000-mile voyage that made him the youngest circumnavigator in history. Despite the boat being knocked over, battered by the oceans and problems that turned the trip into a nine-month odyssey, he battled on, surfing down 50-foot waves at speeds of up to 28 knots to realize his goal.

Yet through all the difficulties, Mike’s positive attitude still shines through. Sailing the Dream is an inspirational and thrilling tale of adventure on the high seas and of how you can be as big as the dreams you dare to live.
