That would allow you a summer in FR, the Balearics, etc then on to Canaries for winter cruising/storage, then cross to Carribean in spring with boatman et al.

He won't need a skipper by then... he'll be working the boat blindfold...

Good luck and Enjoy..
Thanks for your offer, and no, I am not looking for a «cruise». My former self-proclaimed expert-skipper appareantly was looking for that, not me. Besides, I believe he was looking for my credit card as well. Hard to acknowledge: he was a 30 years time friend. I used to fly airplanes for him....

Would take a lot for me to relive that experience. « Fool me once, shame on you, fool me twice, shame on me».

I am sure you're dedicated to helping me, and I am grateful for that. But thanks for this season and especially for the westward North route slingshot or not!

I just e-mailed my insurance broker. Will see what they have to suggest!

So far, the cargo option stands first on the list. Will see as it unfolds.

Thanks everybody!

You could always NOT wait till next year and sail the great northern route directly home!!!

Boatman would be up for that I expect !!

Faster then waiting for shipping
