Hello to all.
(wannabe) Cook here. New to the board but looks like an interesting place to exchange ideas.
I have just begun my research
into the possibility of sailing around the world in 3yrs with 2 children
(will be 9 & 11 then) and a reluctant wife.
We chartered a Trawler
and then went to Strictly Sail in Miami
this last winter, now sold on CATs.
I have far too many Qs to burden everyone with for now, but would like some feedback on this question.
1) What is a good planning speed for a 50' CAT, (Thinking of a Royal Cape Cat)... I was thinking about 5kts, day in day out on sails
2) Has anyone sailed from West Coast
of NA to Asia
via the Northern Route
... up around Southern Alaska
, Kodiak Isl, follow the Isl Chain across to Japan
... is this reasonably possible in the Fall of the Year Aug - Oct ?
Thanks for any help and suggestions... I will try to not over burden you all with too many Qs...
