Re: Circunavigation Let's get real and rough

I have been doing the same research as you. In this question the statistics of your boat are most important to know.

I would go for a full keel, 200+ displacement to LOA ratio and a sail area rating of 17 and up.

Good article here: Understand your boat and her statistics

The Global race boats above match these stats.

Good luck!

Re: Circunavigation Let's get real and rough

Any and all boats have sailed around the world. There is no perfect boat; nor is there any unsuitable boat. Logs have sailed thousands of miles. Cal 20s have circumnavigated. Go with what you can afford and feel comfortable with.

We did it in an old westsnail 43 eons ago. It was suitable for a family with kids and could be single handed. For third world exploration it was perfect. Nowadays if we had megabucks would go with a twin keeled aluminum sled.

Our friends have gone around the world in a 93 foot mega yacht. Would not be our style but it suited them. On the other hand, we met a couple that did it on a dana 24 with no problems. Enjoy. A blind man circumnavigated. World is round. Not a problem.

I would agree with that also.

I love the skeg transform hugging rudder , one of the best i have seen on GRP boats.
As it seems fo now i am closing to a Koopmans or Ovni design, koopmans are closer to my budget.
This is the route of an old 30' production fibreglass sloop.

Fin keel and bulb, sturdy, but it had a decent boom and mainsail when the Miura was crippled by the IOR rule.

There is a world of difference between a 26' and these 30', believe me.
