Re: Sailing, safety, & size

"Just for fun, consider some of the improbable boats that have safely made it around: Lapworth 24, Lyle Hess 24, 25-ft wood Folkboat, Vertue 25, Contessa 26, Heavenly Twins 26 cat, Albin Vega 27, Cal 2-27, Nor"sea 27, Southern Cross 28, H-28, Westsail 28, Piver 28 tri, Ericson 29, Cascade 29, Odyssey 30, Golden Gate 30, Rawson 30, Channel Cutter 30, And I know for a fact that some of these boats on this list were purchased and equipped for less than $10,000. As has often been said, money or size has never been the main obstacle to anyone doing a circumnavigation. These aren't simple ocean crossings they are full circumnavigations" Quoted
