Zac Sunderland

This is probably one of the coolest things I have ever heard. I wish I had learned about this earlier.

The following clip is from the official website:

"Zac is 17 years old, and he is growing up in Southern California. A year and a half ago, he had a dream to sail around the world. It would have been easy to dismiss such a far fetched fantasy, but Zac took his own money, earned like most kids from summer jobs, and bought a 36 foot sailboat. He named his boat Intrepid. His parents had hoped he would find something that would create a fire in him, a passion that would direct him away from all the negative and harmful influences that are so prevalent in our society, but even they were stunned by the scope of his dreams and desires.

Though they first questioned his dream, Zac was not to be deterred, and he worked endless 18 hour days preparing his boat.

In this time of war and historic economic upheaval, here is one young man who has set his mind to a fantastical goal, and stands as a reminder that life is about going forward against great odds and winning.
Zac's dream, a dream of adventure, discovery, and challenge, is one of the simple truths of being human. There is no agenda, no political motivation, just the simple desires of a young man to go exploring, to see new places and meet new people.

It is a simple testament to what is important, to working towards your goals. Most of all, with perseverance and faith in God, anything is possible."
