I hate half measures. The solution is to genetically engineer a sailor corp. What we need is a few hundred young women physically fit with an athletic background, sailors get a bonus payment, willing to become impregnated by known circumnavigators. The resulting children will be born aboard special birth ships I will have arranged for the purpose.
These babies will never leave the boat but from birth they will learn the ropes. If we genetically engineer about 200 children in this way I expect that in 10 years we should have about 3 percent or 6 children that will be specially adapted to this contest. Of these 6 we will probably lose about 4 due to accident etc but we will have two that should be able to circumnavigate at 8 years old.

We are looking for sponsors, and birth mothers.
We have 9 months to prepare the birthing yachts.

If you are going to do something, please put in the effort to do it right.
