Circumnavigating on a 22ft light and fast sailboat:

You know all that jazz regarding being needed an heavy slow boat to do long range voyage because you need to carry a lot of stuff and then a light boat is not light anymore and it is slow and so on...Well some cannot imagine that a circumnavigation cannot be made other way than the way they would choose to do it and even think that a Pogo 12.50 is too small and light to do that with any comfort

These guys are doing it on an used 6.5m mini and they seem quite happy with their comfort and the boat is not even a performance cruiser but an adapted racing mini.

Total Budget: 36 800 euros. Price of the boat: 16 000 euros

Good winds and fair weather to Alexandre and Florian:
