Re: Best way to go?

Why not buy a boat in Europe and sail it across the atlantic on a much more favourable angle. Sailing wise it would be a much more favourable route (with the wind), and probably a similar distance.

I wouldn't recommend sailing that far into the trades, the moment I was able to start sailing with the trades was a very happy day.

Unless you have another 30k sitting around, buy a cheaper boat.

Trying to mash two separate dreams/goals together is a bit ridiculous. Sail with the wind and fly to Brazil. What happens if the game is a dud, 1-0 and all defensive. Or you get seasick the whole way.

Sailing wise I'm sure you could do it, but it would be a real pain and make both events less enjoyable.

Good luck.

Life's a dream, live it!
