Well, if we're going to start delving into romance and great literature...

Truly amazing results.
Why Daddle, planning is part of the fun of it all! Ann and I plan things out in awesome detail, then write out the details in the sand at low tide. In the morning we go for a look (in order to refresh our memory of the details). Bugger! They're GONE... So we see which way the wind is blowing and head off on some favorable point of sail, wondering where we will end up!

Seriously, the longer we've been out, the less we plan in advance. Seem to have more fun that way.

So, the idea of corcumnavigating with only a few stops to repair/provision has no appeal to us at all. When we left SF in 1986 we thought we might circumnavigate. We've been circulating around the SW Pacific since 1990... who knows where the next 24 years will find us? Who cares?

Cheers,

How about this? Finish the boat and head out to Spain and down into the Med. If you like it keep on going. Atleast from there you could have fun and get a huge amount of sailing. Hmmm -- But no classic literature you'll get a headache.

I see I started this thread nearly 3 years ago - 3 guesses how the idea (daydream ) worked out (as a clue - I probably only had 4,000 posts on CF back then ).
