Alex,

I'm still learning... and you're wasting time.

And I'll take that bet on a bottle of wine... I'll even double it!

I'm sure you'll have worked it all out by the time you catch me in your round-the-world dream / goal. Be sure to post your progress and I'll meet you somewhere out here.

Good luck. Please note - my favorite wine is Moet Chandon but Dom will do nicely in a pinch. Chilled, of course.

See you soon?

To Life!

Kirk

Hey karenmc

whether these guys are a good role model or not their trip is fascinating. I looked it up last night out of interest and spent 5 hours reading it, it appears they were not to impressed with Sydney, Australia. They paid too much for everything, that is where local knowledge comes in. Anyhow, it is raining again here in SYdney, becoming the habit on weekends, so I am going to finsih their story off.

IF you know of any more travel diaries like this please advise.

Regards

Manni
I agree, fascinating! And Cruising Wiki will get me in trouble if I start reading these at work!

Strength; Space inside; Sailing ability. All boats are compromises with different formulas. Skip space; you need less than you think. Go for full keel, with hung rudder, so you can hit that container offshore or reef, and keep going. Forget balsa core, get a solid solid glass hull. Look for a boat that will sail off a lee shore without a motor, that can compete in cruising class racing, and that is easy to single hand and sail with just a bungee cord on the tiller. Think something like an Alberg 35, and you're affordable.
