I think the question was related to without making landfall.

Re: What's the longest you've been continuously at sea

27 days on a slow Atlantic crossing, not so much sailing as an experience of living below the stairs with 2 other people!!!

Re: What's the longest you've been continuously at sea

A lot of people have posted some really impressive numbers. I'd like to post for the little guy. Coastal cruising for 2 years now.
At sea almost 3 days and 2 nights. We've had one 1/2 day of bad weather, ever.

Re: What's the longest you've been continuously at sea

32 days from Puerto Vallarta Mexico to Raratonga in The Cook Islands. 3 of us on a 46' Bene. Loved every second of it. We arrived with still fresh bread from Mexico and about a six pack of beer, so we possibly could have lasted another day. We only caught 2 fish the entire crossing! From Raratonga we had about 14 days, I think, to Vanuatu and another 8 to Queensland. Can't wait for the opportunity to do it again. If anyone needs a crew member with about 7500nm under their belt let me know.

Sorry, but my dog has to be on shore every night. He won't use the damn Astroturf pad on the foredeck.

Re: What's the longest you've been continuously at sea

36 days Golfito Costa Rica to Honolulu late 2013. Love the dolfins, every time I see any I run to bow while talking to them, they always come over and play at the bow.

Re: What's the longest you've been continuously at sea

I won't go on the foredeck to pee either, that is what scuppers are for. Once I get things organized, I won't be coming ashore until the fish hold is full. All I need are a few more hitches to fill up the fuel tank and put food on board.

Really??? You sailed through the entirety of French Polynesia without stopping? And then skipped Tonga and Fiji? I'm curious, why did you do that?
