Re: Sailing around the world on a Catalina 22 sailboat
With perfect weather windows it's probably possible. You'd have to have a lot of patience, and not need a lot of food or water storage.
Realistically yes, a 22 foot sailboat can do it - but you'd want the 8,000 lb full keel, heavy-built kinds, not a C22, if you were asking for a personal reason.
You'd have to do more modifications to it all over that it would just make sense to buy a sturdy sailboat.
I have a sabot. Thought about doing the trans-pac in it.
