Sailing schoolboy sets off again

Sailing schoolboy Mike Perham has set off again from Cascais in Portugal. His website indicator shows that he is doing six knots in a south-westerly direction.

The 16-year-old, who set off from Falmouth last Tuesday, had to make a stop to get the autopilot aboard his Open 50 fixed.

He is still hoping to become the youngest non-stop, solo circumnavigator in which case his voyage, if successful will now end in Cascais and not Falmouth.
