This is a bit pessimistic.... Plenty of 20-30' LOA boats have made passages down the western side of the Americas... and a few have even done the Horn..
You're gonna need a good EPIRB or two or three. A full immersion survival suit, and lots of clean underwear. Are you sure you can't find a smaller craft, or raft for your adventure? How about a canoe?

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.
