Zac Sunderland - Circumnavigation Nearing Completion

Zac Sunderland is nearing the end of his solo circumnavigation. He is on the final leg of his voyage - and should complete it sometime later this summer. If all goes well, he will be the youngest person to complete such a solo circumnavigation.

An outstanding testament to the spirit of man.

West Coast Yachts, Seattle, WA

If you are looking for a yacht, I have a great broker to recommend.

Dave Melin is a personal friend, and the owner of West Coast Yachts. He is an experienced sailor, a consumate professional, and a man of high integrity. I highly recommend him and his firm.

Dave is a Hallberg-Rassy dealer.

Mazatlan, Mexico

I have lived in Mazatlan several times in the last few years...spending several seasons aboard my sailboat in the beautifully renovated Marina Mazatlan.

If you need a marine surveryor - or if you need any type of marine or rv refrigeration work done, Mike Wilson of is a great guy, a personal friend, and an excellent business contact for the Mazatlan area.

Another very good friend of mine, Francisco Javier Ramos Granados is a licensed real estate agent for Marina Gardens - and is an excellent local contact (cel. 669 106 91 71)
