The Conditions

Let’s just say the conditions will be mixed!! If I was going the whole way round I could expect any of the following:

  • Blistering heat and energy sapping humidity in the Tropics
  • Bone-numbing icy conditions in the North Pacific
  • Mountainous waves in the Southern Ocean
  • Frustrating calms in the Doldrums
  • Ghostly blankets of fog across the Grand Banks in the North Atlantic
  • Other hazards might include pieces of iceberg that have broken away, wildlife including whales and dolphins and flying fish throwing themselves on deck
  • Sights I’m unlikely ever to forget will include magnificent  sunsets, fascinating wildlife, star-filled night skies and spectacular storms
