Re: Sailing La Vegabond
Where they are right now plugging up hill under motor escaping a developing gale up my butt I'd want the fastest boat for that motoring.
, and then I'd want the heaviest boat for the next 2,000nms.
The last 500 miles from Azores to Gibraltar can be in anything but those first few weeks with 2 gales per week coming off Hatteras... Yikes, you can flick that one right off.
I did Caribbean to UK in June 2 years ago. And when I finished it I spoke to a mate who had his 42 foot boat shipped from Caribbean to UK for US$9,000... At that price any person is a fool to sail that passage... And that's in June, the best month for it.
The North Atlantic is a tricky puddle. Outremer, Lagoon or Queen Mary.
