Hey - You posted here. We didn't come to Burger King to find you. People who know you don't support this, what do you think a bunch of strangers will say?

If you can't handle a little adversity from some old dudes on an internet forum without throwing your dummy out of the pram don't go to sea. Emotions won't save you there.

As Tom Hanks said, "There ain't no crying in baseball."

Same to be said of ocean crossing.

HDTFU - and if none of the terms in this post are familiar google them...

I thought "to stupid" was a verb.

Like. "I stupided a post on CF."

"Don't stupid your mainsail sheeting."

"If you're not careful you can stupid your anchoring."

Re: Circumnavigation

Manners, my dear boy, manners! The key to a successful circumnavigation is proper etiquette.

(You'll find there's much good info here without even posting questions. It's a veritable encyclopedia of sailing. Try using the Search function.)

Re: Circumnavigation

I apologize for my outburst. That was unacceptable and I didn't think about it before I posted it. Goodbye

You don't need to go. Anyone who can apologise will have that apology accepted by good people.

Hang around for a while and see what we get up to on this forum. You will also see we get lots of people of ALL ages coming on with a high dream. We treat most as skeptically as yours. But the people who stay turn the dream into an achievable goal... And many succeed.

Apology accepted and we're here to provide advice. If you want it. But realise that not everyone is going to tell you what you want to hear all the time. That is just the way life works.

No need to apologize.

Just remember only dish it if you can take it...

Character is what you do after someone knocks you down.

Sailing around the world takes a lot of character. It's your dream. Don't let anyone knock you off point...

Even a bunch of old dudes on the internet. As MarkJ says stick around.

If you want to know about sailing this is the right place.

Doh.

I think what I meant was "A native should be able, too"

But perhaps the correct phrase then is "A native should be able to, too"?

All the twists and turns of foreign languages.

A lesson a day.

Yep. I have one. They say every vicar should. Now I am not sure why natives hate vicars but I can imagine their reasons can't be all that different from mine.

Lap lap we did not take with us as the next destination was a country where imports of all plant and soil material is strictly forbidden ;-) Still, we loved it there and we are going to revisit as soon as the kitty is happy.

Cheers,
