Re: Cruising vs. Voyaging

I think you can define the terms anyway you want, there are no generally agreed definitions. I also don't think that you need worry about fitting any preconceived categories. Just approach it in the way that makes sense for you. To some extent extended cruising involves making one trip and then deciding whether you want to do the next one. After our first winter in the Eastern Caribbean we were not sure what to do next. I gave my wife a list of eight options (including staying in the Caribbean, going to Europe, selling the boat, etc). My wife chose a circumnavigation to my surprise. Now that we are getting closer to finishing this, the question is back to what next? BTW, as we approaching South Africa June did mention that we had been to all of the continents except Europe and that did not seem right.

Back home on Lake Ontario after something over 36,000 nm circumnavigator. Not surprisingly there is a lot of stuff I want to get done on Ainia both cosmetically and functionally. Getting an early start so it will be ready to go for next summer (Lake Superior?).
