This week’s Song-Off is dedicated to Zac Sunderland, a California teen who’s about to become the youngest person to sail around the world solo. He departed from Marina Del Rey last year on June 14, and at this moment in time he’s near the tip of Baja California in Mexico, less than 2,000 miles away from the end of his journey. He’s estimated to arrive in port on June 25 or 26, after more than a year at sea. Congratulations, Zac!
