Re: A sailing trip

just wanted to know what would be the best boat to travel from the East coast to Angra do Heroísmo, stopping there to refill, and then to portugal. With enough space to house a 8-10 man crew.

I'm thankful for your advice and concerns, but i already know as much as the risk factor is concerned in all this.

Re: A sailing trip

This would be the perfect boat. Maybe slightly cramped but should be enough room for 8-10 and enough fuel to make it to the Azores.

I'll recommend sail... like more than 1 option... Something like this..
2005 Lagoon LAGOON 440 Sail New and Used Boats for Sale -
Or this..
2006 Beneteau Cyclades 50 Sail New and Used Boats for Sale -

I plan on leaving from the east coast from Massachusetts and heading towards angra do heroiso and stopping there to refill for the journey, and then heading to europe from there. Then from europe i plan on going to Alexandria, Egypt and from there heading down the nile to Cairo, Egypt which will be my final destination. Anyone mind helping me figure out the best and safest route, best boat options, and anything else i'll need like equipment, any legal papers etc for the journey? Thanks!

And by legal papers i meant, Would i need any papers or applications to sail outside the U.S. to europe? and stuff like that.
You'll need to train up to RYA Coastal skipper at the least... or have one of your 8 people to do it..
I'd overland from Alex to Cairo.. highly unlikely you'll be able to sail up there.. why not do as far as Cyprus and fly over from there.. either way you get the flavour of the Med as you Island hop your way across from Spain..
You'll need Passports,
Bill of sale for proof of ownership,
Registration documents,
Insurance for the boat,
and keep ALL receipts from marina's and port officials with the above papers and ready to produce.
Visa's I don't know as I've never needed one...
Equipment etc you will learn about on your RYA course... don't try running before you can walk.

No, based on the questions you are asking, you very obviously do NOT!

Just asking what is the "best boat" indicates that you don't understand the issues involved.

No offense, but once again, do your research. Go get the book that was suggested and READ IT! Then maybe you can quit asking dumb questions.

Re: A sailing trip

He's just playing around on the forum. At first he wants room for 8-10 people, now they are suddenly crew members...............probably well qualified too.

Well that year will be expensive and busy...
7 days live aboard Competent Crew course.. how to tie knots and not get in the way... and other basic principles..
7 days live aboard Day Skipper course... basic coastal navigation and seamanship skills enabling you to competently manage boat and crew..
7 days live aboard Coastal Skipper course... advanced coastal navigation/seamanship skills for long distance coastal and offshore sailing..
Should know your arse from your elbow after that.. don't forget to take the language tapes with you... might keep you from chasing the compass..

As far as that is concerned, it's not that i don't have a passport, but i think this sums it up the best:

Interesting. So are you planning on invading Egypt, or merely seeking asylum there?

- the Rapture
- the Apocalypse
- Escape from the thought police
- Conspiracy theorist
- Zombie Invasion
- Alien Invasion
- US Invasion

Please select all that apply.
