Hi, I am looking at purchasing an ocean ready steel 33 foot sloop in South Africa and sailing it to Australia during mid summer.

I have some experience with coastal sailing but not the Indian Ocean.

Am thinking of hiring a crew member to help with this. How much experience is needed for this trip? I am a mechanic in early 40’s, travel savy, computer savy, coastal sailing exp, two laptops with maxsea and garmin nav software, two GPS’s, calmest time of year early January, sticking above the roaring 40’s but close enough for some speed, not in a hurry.

Am I mad or is it worth having a go if I plan on doing on the cautious side.

Thanks
