Sailing around the world in a small sailboat

Since this is a fantasy of mine and has been for almost 25 years now I just now found this great website Atom Voyages - Good Old Boats List which lists which boats are best for such a voyage. Enjoy!

Re: Sailing around the world in a small sailboat

I made an offer on a Flicka. really liked the boat. The owner was a trust fund baby who was stuck on his price. I came close to his asking but we couldn't come to an agreement. Just on principle I'm not paying asking for anything. My loss, but life goes on.

I've also looked at a bunch of Tritons. What a cool boat! This fueled an interest in other older Pearsons. Which i also really like. But, to me, the fact is I'm not ever going to sail around the world. Just not on the bucket list. The give up on these older designs is in living space. And, since i'm not going any further than the Bahamas, there are many newer designs that can handle that task.

That said, again, I'm a big fan of many of the boats on that list.

Re: Sailing around the world in a small sailboat

While I love the little triton, the other question, in addition to living space, is how far are you comfortable leaning? Alberg drew up beautiful boats, but most of them were CCA influenced, and that means boats that need to lean over to get their functional waterline to where he means it to be. I don't mind it, but I know a number of people who do.

Re: Sailing around the world in a small sailboat

I like the flicka a lot.. I think as I have to redo the cabin of my sprite anyway, I might borrow some elements
