Solo From Aus to Thailand via png

I am currently considering a journey from queensland to thailand via png, I have plenty of boat experience but 0 sailing. so i am likely to join a sail club and begin. also have been looking at the seawind 24' catamaran... a few questions,.. would a year be enough time to prepare for such a journey (sailing experience wise), how long roughly would this take,. would this vessel be suitable seen as the longest stretch of water that would be undertaken is roughly 150km, any suggestions/thoughts on the topic would be greatly appreciated ..

Re: Solo From Aus to Thailand via png

Try timing your voyage to sail in the Indonesian Rally Darwin to Singapore in August. You will get lots of friendly support from the dozens of other boats. They also organise the nightmare of permits you will need to cruise through Indonesia. After Singapore is a leisurely 1 or 2 week cruise up the Malacca strait to Phuket or into the gulf of Thailand to Pattaya.
