Re: Sail from Los Angeles to South Korea and back

Mate, see my first reply. Even for a freaking weekend at anchor 22' is probably too small for two teenagers and their parents. Then you have questions of seaworthiness. Now I know that John Guzzwell sailed the 22' Trekka around the world but he was solo and the boat was purpose built. There are only two possible outcomes you will achieve by stuffing four people into a 22'er . One is murder/suicide and the other is drowning.

Now ... have butchers at a map. In a 22'er you could maybe, just maybe do 120nms per day. Now draw an arc showing all possible destinations 120nms from LA. Get back to me in due course with all the places you intend stopping at.

btw .... why South Korea ?

What stops? Have a look at a map and us where you could stop.

Its not rocket science to open an Atlas and draw a line. There aint nothin out there except Hawaii.
The trip over the top via the Aleutians is up wind in the Screaming 50's and then you hit Russias Siberian coast.

Have you looked at a map????

Go watch that TV show about crab fishermen in Alaska and then imagine not having thier 100 foot boats but some flimsy sail boat 1/5th of the size. And sail INTO all those storms not away from them.

I am in a process of buying 22´ sail boat and wondered if it could be possible.

(Stopping every 4~5 days or so)

If it is, what would be a possible rout?
So sorry for dumb question but can't help my self dreaming.

Again, sorry for my ignorance.
Thanks.
Have you actually looked at a map of the Pacific? Where do you plan to stop every 4-5 days?
like I said...spend a week on a 22 footer...at a dock...and never set foot off of it. You will soon give up this dream of crossing the Pacific.

I fear the whole thing would be something of a rout.

Re: Sail from Los Angeles to South Korea and back

Have you ever looked at a chart of the Pacific Ocean? I don't see many places to stop....Ignorance is one thing, stupidity is another.

Talking Re: Sail from Los Angeles to South Korea and back

Well.. Thanks for all replies.

I had this question because I wan planning to buy 22'.
Then, the deal didn't go through, and I am searching for another sail boat.

Of course the purpose of bying sail is to sail near LA (to Catalina Island or even down to Baja Mexico)
But wondered if it would be possible to travel to Asia even if it takes 1 year or so.

What size would be the smallest for long (distance and time regardless many stops on the way) sailing.
I guess 35' should be ok. Am I right?

The reason why I said Korea was because I found some sailing route maps to Europe across the Atlantic, but I could not find anything beyond to Asia (China, Japan, Korea).
This made me curious if there would be possible route; avoiding storm, pirates and all.

Once again, thanks for your kind replies.
Cheers!
