Re: Absolutely no experience, solo crossing an ocean?

Read up on Donald Crowhurst from the Golden Globe Race in 69 if you're planning this. He had a dream too, and ended up killing himself a few thousand miles from the finish line. Yes, it has been done before and is plausible, but you're talking about a voyage that has claimed the lives of many a seasoned sailor.
