Antigua: Michael Perham

“Annoyed”, writing at the Talk Antigua blog, has serious reservations about the attention showered by Antigua upon Michael Perham, the 14-year old British boy who sailed solo across the Atlantic England to Antigua: “I do agree he put the country’s name in the guinness book of world records again. But what about our own local youth that have done commendable things?”
