We've covered lots of miles but never had the time so far to consider a complete circumnavigation
and not sure I'd actually want to put the time into doing one.
The only people we've known who've done it were either on race
boats or record
breaking type solo sailors and IMHO all were nutters of one type or another.
Several sensible pals who've gone off cruising from downunder have at best after four years got to the Med - or seen themselves well settled into the Pacific / Indian Ocean
rims. Some from the UK have got as far as Panama
- but none so far have got any further.
IMHO there is a lot of world out there and heaps to see and experience in almost every region / country. Its all usually good, so no rush, and probably no complete circumnavigation ever for me.
