Question More Solo RTW Nonsense...

Seems like the new thing to do these days is to be the youngest to sail solo nonstop around the world. I must admit, I have the same dream as the past three (sunderland, perham, and watson), except I don't expect or plan to break any records or be in the spotlight of the media. But let's just say I were 17 years old and had a goal to sail non-stop, singlehanded, totally unassisted around the world within the next five years; how/where would i start planning my journey

Start with the proper boat... and with the pilot charts/sailing directions... at least in terms of planning. Jimmy Cornell's World Cruising Routes has some basic routes for doing circumnavigations in it as well...

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.
