Trans Atlantic / Circumnavigation Insurance
In trying to figure out what the minimum requirements are for crossing the oceans I decided to call an insurance company here in The Netherlands to discover if the have such a list.
Yes they did BUT what they said next blew the proverbial wind out of my sails. The sail boat should be a minimum of 12m it is stated & I'm looking at a van de Stadt 34 which is 10.25m.
How do other people do this?
Is the v/d Stadt safe for crossing oceans? From what I have read & heard I think "yes".
WHY is 12m the minimum?
Forget crossing the Atlantic, what if she takes me to the southern oceans?
Thanks for reading my post
