14 Year Old Sails the Atlantic!

GD Star Rating

This has got to be a joke right? Fourteen year olds aren’t even allowed to rent rated R movies in the United States! And now you are telling me that he did this on his own…I wonder if this ancient chart of the Atlantic Ocean is the one that he used ;-)

ancient nautical chart of the atlantic ocean

This is an absolutely amazing story. A 14 year old kid took three weeks off from school and sailed a 8.5 meter sailboat, roughly 30 foot sailboat, across the Atlantic Ocean. He stated in an interview (a 14 year old kid giving interviews!!!) that he used the same trade winds that sailors have been using for years. His dad followed him and remained in radio contact the entire time. He said he was stoked to be back on dry land and ready for a steak dinner. Amazing.
