Planning stage

We will go through Panama next fall and in general follow the standard route around including South Africa. We will investigate going to China and/or India on the way since I am fascinated by both and it would be interesting to go to areas that are not on the beaten track for cruisers. We have no particular time frame in mind althought it will be at least three years. We are at the stage of making lists of places we want to go, finding places we don't know about that are great and using Cornell to figure out when various passages should be made and how all of this can reconciled. Great fun.

I know there are places to anchor in the cruising grounds of places like Scotland and Ireland. My concern was about going up the Atlantic Coast from Portugal to southern England and the western part of the Med. We have been told that it is very hard to find anchorages. We might go to Europe on the circumnavigation in any case.

After the refit we have decided to sell Ainia. We want something smaller that would be could for the light summer winds of Lake Ontario, although we plan to spend at least a couple of winters in the Caribbean before heading north.
