Re: long distance cruising in a PS 34?

I love it when folks talk about outrunning a storm. Keep mind that most storms move a whole lot faster than any production sailboat I know of. And, for those that sincerely believe they can outrun a storm, maybe you should read Lin and Larry Pardey's Storm Tactics Handbook.

Almost forgot, one of my You Tube heroes is a Brit sailing White Shadow, a 33-foot steel sloop that has crossed the Atlantic, passed through the Panama Canal and is now sailing in the Pacific. He took a short break to visit his home in England, and will soon be returning to Panama to resume his voyage. He's about 10 years younger than myself, I believe, around 66 years of age.

Good Luck from an old single handed sailor,
