BOY sailor Michael Perham has today (Tuesday) announced his next adventure - barely a week after he returned from his latest record-breaking trip.

The Potters Bar 17-year-old - the youngest person to sail solo around the world - will be joined by Australian adventurer Don McIntyre in the 2010 Bounty Boat Expedition.

In aid of research into Motor Neurone Disease, the 4,000-mile expedition, in April, is an attempt to follow in the footsteps of William Bligh in 1798.

Read what Michael, of Oakroyd Avenue, has to say about his next venture in tomorrow's Potters Bar Edition of the Welwyn & Hatfield Times.
