Demande avis sur parcours de grand voyage...
Bonjour à tous,
Je prépare un grand voyage avec 3 destinations phares : réunion, amérique du sud et polynésie. Départ prévu : sept 2004
et ça fait qq jours que je me creuse la tête, cartes et pilots charts à l'appui sur le parcours idéal pour tout ça en 2 ans et 3 mois maxi.
J'aimerai que vous me donniez votre sentiment sur cette route. Si les délais entre les stop mentionnés sont longs c'est parce qu'on compte prendre le temps de vivre et que le cabottage est inclus. ;-)
Pour info, bien évidemment la route logique aurait été un tour du monde par les alizés mais en deux ans c'est trop rapide. Alors j'ai imaginé ça : je passe les grands caps aux bonnes saisons et j'évite toutes les saisons de cyclones je pense. La date de départ est fixe.
Départ de Dunkerque : 09/2004
Açores : 10/04
Venezuela : 11/04
Panama : 01/05
Galapagos : 03/05
Marquises : 05/05
Polynésie : 07/05
Ile de Paques : 09/05
Horn - Patagonie : 12/05
Bonne Espérance : 03/06
La Réunion : 05/06
Puis en fonction de la situation politique :
Route A :
Somalie - Soudan : 09/06
Suez : 10/06
France - Sud : 12/06
Route B :
Bonne Espérance : 09/06
Cap Vert : 10/06
France - Sud : 12/06
Merci de vos avis par avance
parcours de grand voyage
1/ niveau réel et expérience du capitaine et de l'équipage.
2/ modèle et état du bateau
et je m'en pose une tout seul: pourquoi mes cheveux se sont dressés d'un coup sur ma tête àla lecture des points de passage projetés?

Lone sailor saved after yacht rolls six times
Posted Fri, 08 Nov 2002
A 72-year-old German sailor was plucked to safety off Port Elizabeth on Thursday as his badly damaged yacht drifted into the south Indian Ocean after it had rolled six times in a storm.
The city's National Sea Rescue Institute station commander, Ian Gray, said Heinz Schwab was extremely lucky because his 38 foot steel yacht was drifting away from sea lanes.
A supertanker, however, spotted one of his emergency flares early on Thursday.
Schwab has been at sea for fourteen years
Schwab, who has been sailing round the world alone for the past 14 years, was on his way to South America from Richard’s Bay when his boat rolled six times during a storm on Monday night. His sailing gear and radio were damaged.
Said Gray: "He managed to get the motor going and he was trying to get to East London but he was 35 nautical miles (from East London) when trailing ropes and steel cables fouled his propeller."
Schwab spotted a supertanker at 5.45am, fired flares, and a rescue operation was launched.
Yacht found drifting outside shipping lanes
Gray said: "By the time we reached him he was drifting at quite a high speed. It took us about 90 minutes to locate him. He was 50 miles from PE and a good 45 miles from the closest land.
"He was outside shipping lanes and it is unlikely that anyone else would have seen him."
Schwab sustained lacerations to his head and legs and was bruised all over his body.
"But for a 72-year-old man he is in very good health," Gray said.
It took six hours for officials to tow the yacht to Port Elizabeth. The party reached port just before 6pm.
The Paxton Hotel offered Schwab free accommodation.
"He is extremely lucky. He would have ended up in the south Indian ocean. It would have taken him eight weeks to reach his next port of call, sailing normally, and I don't even know if anyone was expecting him."
World trip a life’s dream – sailor
Speaking from his hotel room, Schwab said sailing around the world was his life's dream. "I like to see God's creation," he said.
The retired Opel factory manager said he thought Africa was a beautiful continent, and South Africa one of the most beautiful countries in it. Schwab, who has no family except for a brother, said he had spent the last twelve months with friends in Richard's Bay.
He expected the repairs to his yacht could take as long as a year, as the damage from rolling was so great.
"Everything was destroyed."
Water had got in everywhere, and even his passport, which was well protected, had got wet.
Asked if he planned to return to Germany, Schwab laughed and said "I hope never." He disliked the extremes of heat and cold in the European climate.
Schwab said he was overwhelmed by the friendliness he had experienced in Port Elizabeth.
