Wonderful!! I am so glad there is so much interest in Zac's journey and that unlike with Robin Lee Graham's adventure (the boy in the book who inspired Zac and the same boy and book who inspired me so many years ago!) we can all make this trip, too, thanks to websites such as this one and his own website. Please keep more video essays coming! This one was beautiful! Thank you!

Hi,
I read about Zac's quest in the LA Times a few weeks ago. I think it is really cool. I hope he sets a record! I have experience on a power boat not a sailboat. I don't really understand the friction between the sail and power boaters but it is there. I have been at a boat show asking about a windlass and was told to talk to the power boaters because they were a sail boat vendor:) I think they both have advantages. I don't own a boat but I have fished uncountable hours on my best friends. We fish sport and commercial and I know about sea conditions. Zac will definitely be tested. He seems to have the background and the desire to do great things. I'm glad you are covering this. Go Zac, hang in there, we are with you!!
