The inspiring story of Jesse Martin's record-breaking, solo round-the-world journey

Lionheart Summary

Lionheart by Jesse Martin

On 31st October 1999 Jesse Martin, in his yacht Lionheart, completed the last great adventure of the 20th century by becoming the youngest person to sail solo, non-stop and unassisted around the world. He was eighteen years old. After 50,000 kms and 328 days at sea he returned home to Port Phillip Bay and a waiting crows of twenty thousand onlookers. Jesse Martin was destined for adventure. After learning to sail at the age of fourteen he travelled along Australia's tropical coast on a flimsy catamaran, and by sixteen he had kayaked through the remote islands off Papua New Guinea and crewed on a yacht sailing from Belize to Tahiti. But the biggest adventure was still to come. Lionheart is Jesse's story - a story of courage, loneliness and danger - and of a young man's determination to live his dream.
