southerncross31 is on a distinguished road
Not to discredit Donna in any way...she has sailed more than i ever will, but she wasn't any more prepared than Ken when she left. Infact, i think she had less sailing experience than he did...according to her website. Both Donna and Pat Henry, who circumnavigated in a sc31 said the thing to do is to just go. I have also heard the same thing from many other cruisers! Ken's biggest problem was the fact that he had cut the Bilge Keels off of his boat. He was told that this would not be a problem, or affect stability, but that is not true! He was sailing a crippled boat from the start.
