ATLANTIC SAILOR
Sebastian Clover is a 15-year-old boy who lives in the south of England. In January, he became the youngest person ever to travel from
one side of the Atlantic Ocean to the other, all alone in a sailing boat.
It took Sebastian 25 days to sail from Tenerife to the island of Antigua in the Caribbean. This isnt very fast, but it is a long way for
someone so young!
The weather was fine during Sebastians trip, which was lucky, and he wasnt always completely alone. Sometimes very large fish swam
along next to his boat. At first he was afraid that they were dangerous, but the fish were just being friendly.
The main problem that Sebastian had on the trip was when his telephone stopped working. His parents were really worried about him,
because he usually phoned them every day, but for the last three days he couldnt. Sebastian was sorry not to talk to them, but nothing
else was wrong.
Sebastian kept a video diary on his trip. You will soon be able to buy this video in the shops. Sebastian wants to sail around the world next
and he needs to save up some money to pay for the trip. If you buy his video, this will help him.
