New here - Planning trip around the world...

Hey all! I'm new to the board... I'm planning a sailing trip around the world to raise money for pediatric cancer patients within the next 1-2 years and this looks to be an excellent online resource.

I know you all will think I'm crazy, but I have never sailed in the ocean before. I never been more than a passenger on a sailboat for that matter. Kids with cancer face a battle that's more difficult than any other, and I decided to attempt something almost as difficult as the struggle these kids and their families go through.

Any advice during my perparation for this is much appreciated.
