Circumnavigating the earth in a sailboat is a dangerous proposition, even for those who have done it before. Look at the example of Quen Cultra. He had done the Ferdinand Magellan dance before. But on his latest attempt, the boat was capsized and only one of the three men on board survived.
Unfortunate as that is, it makes what Zac Sunderland is doing that more impressive. Sunderland is expected to complete his circumnavigation of the globe in is 36′ sailboat, the Intrepid, this morning. It took Sunderland 13 months to complete the journey, and he did it all before his 18th birthday.
This has to make you ask, what have I done with my life in the past 13 months?
