The kid, who is joined by his father, 12 crew men and a dog will venture the high seas and visit several countries such as Israel, spain and Italy. And, yes, he will miss school, but he says he’ll gain two more years of experience thanks to his tour. Look out for this interesting story in the Miami Herald next week.
