64000 Dollar Question

Here's the deal ! Still contemplating a passage from the Chesapeake Bay to Manila and back. Would you travel through the Panama Canal and return via the Suez Canal. Of course this is a multi year event that will be done in legs with the vessel left along the way in various ports. Seems as if the Pirates have moved on to the West African Coast too. Who knows when this Covid thing will end but meanwhile life goes on. Interested to hear from others who have done this or other well meaning shipmates. I hope not to hear from any Trolls or Negative Nellies either. Real talk is okay that is honest too. THANKS!

Re: 64000 Dollar Question

You've described the most popular route, one which keeps the wind mostly at your back and in warmer temperatures.
There's no telling what the political/piratical/pandemical climate will be: it changes often, and in some places faster than others. I'd start with that plan, and when in Madagascar decide whether to go Suez or South Africa, depending on the current state of affairs.

Re: 64000 Dollar Question

Many have deleted the Galapagos stop from their itenerary which is a shame. The paperwork and fees seem to be a real hassle.
