17 year old sailing ace Mike Perham arrived safely at Panama last week in his bid to become the youngest person to sail around the world single handed. After a sleepless night dodging shipping the schoolboy sailing veteran will spend the night with a family in Panama to relax and recharge. His parents have had this to say of their son’s progress,

'The Perham family anxiety levels have now receded as Mike safely arrived at Flamenco Marina, Panama at 09.30hrs local time (15.30hrs BST). He was escorted in by guys from the Panama Sailing School and shepherded into his berth by three ribs from the marina… There were several members of the media and people from the yacht Club to greet him… Stopping in Panama will allow TotallyMoney.com to have a thorough check over before she transits the canal and heads off into the Caribbean. If all goes well we are hoping that Mike will be able to transit over the weekend… We are hugely grateful to the people of Panama who are making Mike so welcome and organizing everything that needs to be done to get TotallyMoney.com on her way.’
