Hi, I'm brand new to this site and look forward to reading and posting
now and then.I picked the username "Passing Wind" because it was the name of my sloop
a few years back.I noticed the newspaper article today about the 17yr old Zac Sunderland who just completed a 13 month Solo around the world trip. It reminded me of the story of Robin Lee Graham who also sailed solo around the world. both Zac and Robin set sail at the age of 16.Zac did it in 13 months where as Robin took his time, staying in ports
for long periods before completing his trip in about 4 yrs. Zac had a 36 footer for his trip. Robin did half his trip in a little 24 footer.half way through his trip National Geographic gave him a 33 footer to complete the trip. A movie
was made of Robin's trip some of you might remember called "The Dove". been looking but haven't found it on dvd
yet.has anyone followed both teens trips? i'm looking forward to reading Zac's book and seeing his dvd
about to come out soon.
