sailing to china end of the year?
Hi, im new round here. I have a brother who has bought a 45' yacht and is planning to sail it to china, i have agreed to come aboard as cook but am a bit reserved still. I have faith in him but would like to hear from anyone who has done a similar trip, or any handy hints anyone has. We are hoping to sail from Darwin Australia, onto Dili up through the Molucca sea to Qingdao, China around the beginning of October. Is this is a good time to travel? Is there a site i can get hold of seasonal wind charts, currents etc? Most important question i suppose, has anyone done this route or know of a better one? Is there any loose convoys heading that way??
