Michael Perham Interview Good afternoon ladies and gentlemen! My name is Annabelle Park and this is ‘Park’s world records’! Today I will be interviewing Michael Perham, the world record holding sailor. He holds two world records; the first is because he sailed across the Atlantic Ocean, solo! The second is because he sailed right around the world! His next challenge is to fly right around the world by solo! So welcome, Michael Perham!! (Clap X1000 people) Hello Michael, we were just talking about you!! We all know you are a great sailor, but what made you get very interested in it? I learnt from my dad how to sail at a young age. I sailed a few times with my dad that made me more interested. My dad gave me my own boat after I was really interested, the boat I ride right now the Cheeky Monkey was a gift from my dad. We just watched a little clip of you when you were sailing, but when you sail what is the weather like?
The weather is sometimes great and sometimes horrible. When it’s great the weather is nice and sunny, but when it’s horrible there are sometimes storms, big waves crashing and many more. We know you sailed around the world, but when you were half way through where were you in the world? I was around Australia I think because I started in England so it may be Australia. It was a great journey I must tell you about later! When I passed Australia I just remembered a friend who left to Australia.
Your dad was accompanying you behind you right? However why did you still get homesick?? Well I hated the tinned food, missed my cozy bed, wanted to eat some delicious food by my mom, nice weathers and my friends and family. I also missed the movie theaters and many more.
There must be many sponsorship!!!What kind of companies helps you for your trip? Well there are many sponsors like Sketchers the shoes store, totally money the bank and many more that I can’t think of any more. The sponsors help me gather money.
You were at sea for a long time, what do you mostly miss about home?
As I said a while ago, my family, friends, food, weather, Movie theaters, the food my mom makes for me and back on land. But mostly, my family and friends.
Thank you for talking with us today. (Clap X10)
