That Boat says it all...

LOL

TOTALLYMONEY.COM

Only a kid with his own sailboat would have that a sponsor like that

Having parents with money might make it easier, I didn't/don't

But to me that doesn't diminish the spirit it takes to pull such trips off!

As much as I respect Ham's accomplishments, I think he was on a ballistic flight. Ergo not RTW.

You're correct.
Ham's environment was very different.
Apples and tangerines....
Ham was sponsorless....only a tool....one cog....

It's not a n RTW trip, but my son did 10,000 km (4 countries) in South America on a 250cc and turned 17 on the trip. I know it's not much, but the fact that you have to be at least 18 to drive in SA made it interesting!
