Kenichi Horie, a Japanese 83-year-old, set a record by becoming the world’s oldest solo yachtsman to cross the Pacific, arriving after two months at sea in a 19ft yacht. “Don’t let your dreams just stay as dreams. Have a goal and work towards achieving this and a beautiful life awaits,” Horie said. Horie has a backstory, as he was the first person to make a non-stop journey across the Pacific, from Japan to California back in 1962.
