Likeable and well-made story.
22 April 1999 | by (Belfast, Northern Ireland) – See all my reviews

True story about 16 year old American Robin Lee Graham who becomes the youngest ever person to sail around the world. Joseph Bottoms does very well portraying the young man and is well supported by Deborah Raffin. What makes the film, however, is the direction. I give 6/10
