It's possible but extremely improbable, and it would take support, you'd need to rebuild the boat a couple times enroute just from wear and exposure, even without breakage.
I say it's possible because I've seen people in other parts of the world make a sailboat out of a kitchen table and rice sacks for offshore fishing. Almost anything is possible but I couldn't get enough drinking water onboard personally, I've been thirsty.

Re: Sailing around the world on a Catalina 22 sailboat

Seems like a joke/ troll to elicit responses and all that however remember the Russian doin it on a San Juan 24 and those aren't much better than the fixed keel Catalina 22

Big boats have more room for food and water; that's nice because then you won't have to stop at a 7-11 every few days during your circumnavigation and load up on over-priced junk food.

Re: Sailing around the world on a Catalina 22 sailboat

I met a guy who sailed his West Wright Potter 19, "Tubby" from San Francisco to Hawaii. Not my cup of tea, but...

And hit just one storm and it would swallow up the boat like nothing.

The correct answer to OP's original question is "no."
Shane Acton sailed Shrimpy around 1 and 3/4 times.

Shrimpy was a Caprice, a 18' 6" bilge keeler constructed mostly from 1/4 inch plywood. It was just about completely standard when he left. He did not even have any form of self steering and his cooker was a paraffin stove in a biscuit tin.

Having looked at a Caprice when I was looking for a trailer sailor and then buying a Catalina 22 [Jaguar 22 in the UK ] A Catalina 22 is a much stronger and I am pretty sure more seaworthy than a Caprice. It can certainly carry more stores.

I think in the right hands a Catalina 22 , fixed keel preferably, could circumnavigate. Sure there are other boats like an Amel 55 that would be a better choice but I think it could make it round.

The two books Shrimpy and Shrimpy sails again are required reading for anyone considering a small boat circumnavigation. Small is anything less than 100ft IMHO.

This is about a kid sailing around the word. You might want to read and watch Leen & Larry Parley books and videos. They will help making your boat ready for all the passage needs, like collecting water with the sail and the bimmini. The most important topic is the storm tactics experience require for the probable 10% of very bad weather. I you have the spirit and practice your tactics, you can do anything you set your mind to. Also check The Lion Heart.

Not that I plan to circumnavigate (and certainly not in a C22) but why is this the case?

Even if this thread is a joke, some useful information can still be shared.
Never hurts to learn something new or share what you know.

Thanks.
