Further to the above report, annoucing that Zac Sunderland, 16, hopes to set a record as the youngest solo circumnavigator, we should point out that another 16-year-old, Josh Clark of Panama City, Panama, may attempt the same feat.
After cruising extensively with his parents for eight years, Josh found an abandoned Cal 32 in Panama, completely rebuilt her inside and out, and at last report was about to jump off for French Polynesia. Who knows? Josh and Zac may end up in an unplanned race to the Marquesas — and on around the planet!
Stay tuned for updates on the progress of both boats.
