Re: How hard is it to sail around the world alone?
Even if you had a scale of "hardness" that everyone could agree upon, the number would be different for different people because sailors differ in their self-reliance, psychological adjustment, experience, preparation, motivation, resilience, adaptability, budget, equipment, skills, support structure ashore, and luck. So, if I were to give an answer it would be 7, 8, 9, and 10... and maybe for a few folks, 11.
