Zac Sunderland, who at 17 became the youngest person at the time to successfully sail solo around the world, will be at the seventh annual San Diego Yacht and Boat Show, which runs July 22-25.

Sunderland departed Marina del Rey harbor June 14, 2008 in a 36-foot Islander sailboat, The Intrepid, that he purchased for $6,000. Thirteen months and two days later, he returned to his home port in Los Angeles.

Sunderland and his sailboat will be making a four-day appearance at the show so he can personally meet his fans and followers.
