Re: Sailing, safety, & size
This is the map of the triple circumnavigation on the 47ft boat:
Regarding the first one I don't think he was never North of the Equator. In fact it was a two times Antarctic circumnavigation. He passed South of the 5 more Southern Capes.
Normally today when someone talks about a circumnavigation by the three capes talks about only the three big none ones, the others are implicit. I had never heard someone talking about circumnavigating by the 5 capes even referring to passing all of them. I guess that the denomination "by the three capes" is the more common now.
You do not know what the heck you are talking about. Please cease posting this incorrect information now. I will post the corrections to your post when I have some time. You have posted so much false information it will take some time to post the facts for you (promise by today though- HI time).
You were correct Jon's triple was done in a 47 footer. When I said 40 footer, I was just trying to get in the ball park- could not remember the exact size.
