I want to get my boat to Thailand
, and it seems to make sense to take it there myself.
I don't want to do more than 3-4 weeks at a time on board, as I would like to be able to hop back to UK for a week or so in between legs to keep an eye on work things, although I'll have an Iridium phone
with me on board.
Has anyone any advice on the best route
, where it will be feasible and realistic to leave the boat, possibly unattended. I would be ideally looking to leave it in secure marinas
with gardienage services. Is this unrealistic or should I make arrangements for a crew to be permanently on board?
Time is not an issue. Places where running repairs
can be organised would be useful.
Our initial thoughts are:
???? for Suez/ Egypt
All suggestions and ideas appreciated.
The boat's a 2003/4 Jeanneau
49. It's MCA coded having spent 3 years on skippered charter
. There's a watermaker
already fitted + AC and all usual nav / safety gear
I sailed the boat down from UK (my first offshore
trip) in 2004.
