Hello Everyone,

First of all I would like to say how much I've enjoyed finding this site, what a great resource!!

On the 'hitchhiker's guide' (which is great) I have noticed that the best time to find boats to crew on kind of moves east-west around the globe. I'm assuming this correlates with the direction and rate of the trade winds. Based on this, how feasible would it be do a complete circumnavigation by just following this guide and finding boats to crew on?

Has anybody here done a trip like this? Anybody known anyone to do this?

How reasonable would it be to expect to find boats to crew on for this whole trip?

Any other thoughts/advice?

thanks in advance for your wisdom and patience!
