Happy Holidays!

Turned the big 19 on the 29th of November - kind of one of those in between birthdays but it was nice to celebrate it with friends and family. Had a little party on Intrepid but we all had to be very careful as my dad and I have just done a major refit on the boat, part of which is new teak and holly floors (pictures will come soon).

As we’re moving into winter, the snow is falling and my friend Taylor and I have been at Mountain High every chance we get snowboarding (pictures also coming soon camera fell casualty to snow). The general plan is get all the homework done in the car at 6am, get there at opening and go till they close at 10pm. It’s a good out for our adrenaline needs.

Also, on the topic of cold places, I’m heading up to Canada for the Toronto Boat Show http://www.torontoboatshow.com/ in January followed by the Chicago show where I will be with my friends from http://sailology.com/ and at their booth and speaking for the 4 days of the show, then back up to Canada for the Vancouver Show where I hope to meet with some experts on the North West Passage and get the campaign in motion for a solo trip through.

Well the big news for this blog is that after owning Intrepid for over 2 years and close to 30,000nm at 6 to 7knots, I am putting her on the market. We have spent the past couple of months refitting, varnishing, wiring and replumbing her. You faithful who are reading my blog are the first to know.

For serious buyers, email me at Zacsworldadventure@yahoo.com Like I said you are the first to know and we are in the process of adding a spec sheet with new pictures of the refit on my site.

Well I hope everyone is having a good holiday season.

Gosh, Zac, I had to read your breaking news twice! It's hard to imagine Intrepid going to a new owner. Hopefully, you get a good price for her and that she stays in MDR so you can see her occasionally. Guess you're looking to upgrade for your Northwest Passage journey. Can't wait to follow that!! I hope you'll blog again for all of us.

Here's wishing you and your family a very merry Christmas. It'll be interesting to see what the New Year has in store for all of you. In the meantime, have fun on the slopes!

Hey Zac,

This is exciting news. Intrepid is going to a new owner and you are making plans for your next solo. So this means a new boat? All very great. I can't wait to hear the plans taking shape.

It is hard believe you only had Intrepid two years. It seems like a lot longer. Or that you just turned 19. Its like this adventure has gone on for a lot longer, and you would be older too. That is because you have brought so much excitement to a lot of people, and involved us in your life to where it seems like many more years.

Good luck Zac. Enjoy Mountain High. Have a wonderful Christmas and New Year ahead. Be safe too!
