Lionheart – Jesse Martin

Courageous and determined, Jesse Martin set off to sail around the world when he was aged just 18 – aiming to be the youngest person to ever sail solo non-stop around the globe. In a thirty-four foot yacht named Lionheart, he had no visitors, used no fossil fuels, received no supplies and did not step off the boat during this ten month journey. The overall message that even ordinary, young kids can follow their dreams and passions, is inspiring – even if the prose doesn’t always convey the excitment of the journey.
