Virginia to Phuket, Thailand

I am planning to relocate to Thailand and need to get suggestions on the best route / timing. Any suggestions will be appreciated.

Buy Jimmy Cornell's World Cruising Routes. Alternate routes and timing are covered very well.

Re: Virginia to Phuket, Thailand

Basically you are looking at the "Coconut Run" through the South Pacific to get there after doing a Panama Canal crossing. Basically you are looking at about a year enroute.
- - The optimum time to start the South Pacific run from Panama is around April. So you need to get to Panama (about 600 nm) and through the Panama Canal by then. Then you have only 11,500 nautical miles to go to get to Thailand.
- - You can specific information about the South Pacific run each year from Pacific Puddle Jump Official Web Site
- - Shipping the boat might be a lot quicker - or - sell it and buy another one in Southeast Asia.
