TeMPuS2010 is on a distinguished road
We are looking at going through the Panama canal, onto Galapagos then through French Polynesia and so on. I have read before that the schedule is the deadliest thing, this should no really be an issue as we are not rushed for time. As for heavy weather sailing we have not really done much, is reading books and practicing the techniques on the shakedown tests sufficient? just get the crew to work together and know what to do in foul weather...
