If we were going to do it, we would be doing it to sail - as in sailing even the grizzled vets would give you credit for. Because of tax issues, we couldn't stay in places like Australia/New...

Yes, you are probably right to at least some degree. Having been on a course charter with no issues on the boat at all I was likely expecting a few but not a lot of...

My hunch is we are going to have to give it another go - expecting not smooth like we had but maybe getting somewhere in between that and the smoothness of the instruction sail.

Well, I can address some incremental points - not in any particular order but as they come to mind.
Firstly, I don't think I quite 'jumped in with both feet' to the degree mentioned. We took a full...

I do agree, there may likely be that many ships but yes, who would commit them to this task. No real upside like you say and as soon as you uncommitted, the problem would just rise up again.

Correct, 38 is a charter. I realize a a 48 or 55 would be quite large but anyone buying a cat is looking at 38 as a minimum pretty much. I am also thinking safety here - would you rather be in the...
