Dwarf Circumnavigating?

After many years of major health problems now resolved we have, as you may know, set sail. Rather than sitting in a box on dirt feeling sorry for ourselves we decided to do something wonderful. In a week or so we will finally be leaving Ensenada for the Sea of Cortez and Mainland Mexico and eventually we plan to circle the globe. My son, Eli, is a 15 year old achondroplastic dwarf and it begs the question, has any dwarf ever circumnavigated? I haven't heard of one and the Little People of America have not either.
Have you heard of one or will Eli be the first?

No, I have not. I hope your son will be the first. Go far and be safe, we are rooting for you.

Whether he's first or not, it will be a first for him, and a wonderful experience. Best of luck and keep posting. I'll follow your blog.
