Re: West to East - Trans-Pacific to Japan

While it all depends on your personal risk/reward factor

It costs and easy 35K to have a boat equipped with the required safety stuff for Newport / Bermuda Race and that's only a 600 some odd mile hop

There is no law what you have to bring BUT your gonna need a robust self steering device and enough stuff to self sufficient or be prepared to lose the boat

If a dirty bottom slows you down what do you think it does to your boat
