Re: Islander 28 single handed around Cape Horn?
I know a guy on a Bristol 27 who is sailing around the world (or at least heading in that direction) singlehanded, without an engine. Didn't do Cape Horn though. Last saw him in Suwarrow. Also met four French kids (to me, anyone under 30 is a kid) in Mangareva who had come down the Atlantic and gone to Antartica in a pretty ordinary-looking boat. I guess somewhere in there they went around Cape Horn.
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.
