cheeky monkey sets new record

Next time you're feeling like it's all a bit too much effort, think about 14 year old Michael Perham who just crossed the Atlantic single-handedly in his yacht 'Cheeky Monkey', and set a new world record into the bargain (I tend to feel I'm doing well when I make it across town in one piece). Hat off to his dad too, who 1) allowed him to do it in the first place, and 2) followed him all the way.

It just goes to show what can be achieved when we follow our dreams (not to mention having really supportive parents and a 28 foot yacht ;-)
