I appreciate the advice that was given to the OP about needing to be prepared before crossing an ocean, taking time to learn, etc, but I would like to add one thought that I think contradicts all of that - at 60 years old you're starting to think about how much longer you'll be fit enough to do anything, much less sail across an ocean. While I think the advice about preparing, learning skills, etc, is all well intentioned and for a 30 year old spot on, at some point you just have to start thinking that if you're ever going to do something you better get to it. Like they say, life is not a dress rehearsal, this is it.
