Re: Best way to go?

OK, we'll keep the negative thoughts to ourselves, at least temporlarily, tell us your plan on how you are going to get the knowledge and experience nessasary to make such a trip. What about your crew? Are they going to follow the same training?
What kind of boat are you planning on buying?
This is a trip that demands lots of experience, both of captain and crew, knowledge of the sea and sailing, a well thought out sailing plan, and especially, a boat built for the task. There are a lot of $100k boats out there that are nice boats, but weren't built for serious, out in the middle of the ocean sailing.
