We have a 6 year old son and will have a 2 year old daughter when we take off. We're looking for other cruising families we can reach out to, support, talk about prep, places, etc. It's an emormous undertaking, I imagine the number of people who go on a circumnavigation
are pretty similar in numbers to the number of astronauts. We'd love to find others out there who share the dream.
My wife and I have gone cruising through the Bahamas
in 2001/2002, and this is our second catamaran
. We've been live aboards now for 12 years.
Respond to me in a private email
and I'll setup a yahoo group for us.
Right now the plan is a circumnavigation
11/1/2012 US East Coast
2013 Bahamas -> Rio Dulce, Guatemala
with stops in Cuba
and probably language school
while waiting the hurricane
2014 Pacific Not much on specifics, but from timing information on World Cruising Routes, we pretty much have to leave Panama
by February 2012 and then be at South Africa
by November to go around the cape.
2015 Return across Atlantic and east coast
by June 2015
That's the plan right now.
