I am considering a late-seson thrash across the back half of Pacific and mid/southern Indian ocean westbound from Tahiti mid sept to arrive Cape Town praps early mid Nov and wonder if anyone else had done the same? Well i mean obviously they have but are they on ybw? I'm really looking for first hand and/or vaguely knowledgeable info whilst i am off the boat and without pilot books such as Cornell etc to tell me er how far it is and it's gonna be godawful weather etc, but it's fine for others to throw in ideas, or even just casually banjax the thread, should be on another forum and so on, general abuse, or even things like what bit of the solent is that? or anything to keep the thread a bit highish for a little while. I can usually plan at 1,000nm per week and i suppose it mite be um bout 9000nm? ish.
