Val's Blog: Outtakes from My Interview with the Teen Sailor

I did a webcam interview with Zac Sunderland who is sailing around the world solo, hoping to set a record as the youngest person to do that. Here are some bites that didn't make it on air.

Last week when he was in the Caribbean a 30-foot wave hit him and almost knocked him overboard. I asked him about these strange things called "rogue waves."

Zac has been at sea for almost a year. Can you imagine being in a boat by yourself that long? I asked what he'll do when he finally arrives home. Here's what he said.

There aren't many In 'N Out Burgers on the high seas. So what does Zac eat onboard?

We know his story may end up on the big screen or TV. I asked Zac what actor he would like to play him in the movie. (Hollywood will probably add a chapter about his adventures on a island of lonely women.)

Zac is due to sail into port in Los Angeles around mid-June. May the final leg of his journey be free of rogue waves.

Safe sailing, Zac! Make that right turn and have a safe journey home!
