Michael Perham proved that no matter how old you are, you can accomplish anything you set your mind to. The 17-year-old British teen became the youngest person to sail around the world -- all by himself!

Reuters reports that the Hertfordshire native spent nine months at sea, and though he ran into many obstacles and suffered damage to his yacht, he is still marked in Guinness World Records history!

Perham said he was sure he would make it all the way, but there were times that he was unsure of what he was doing. "But you push on and you handle it," he told the BBC.

Way to go, Mike!
