Robert Suhay set a world record in distance sailing in 2014 and beat it in 2015 by sailing 346.1 NM in the Atlantic Ocean on a 14 foot boat. Tylers bracelet made the trip also.
"I told his parents I would carry it with me on my attempt this time," he said. "I really think it's important that I find some way to let them know that he, Tyler, was with me all the way. That Tyler set the world record. I don't know if that will help, or even mean anything, but it meant something to me to have this with me."
