Budget, boat choice, and crowdfunding

Hello friends of SF2SF; we hope you like our new name. We may even soon have a logo. Read on as we talk about our crowdfunding campaign to circumnavigate Earth on a small sailboat

It’s time to make hard choices. Acquiring the right boat, just like buying a house, is a difficult process. We’ve talked about boat choices here and there before. Last week, we had an opportunity to discuss boat choices with a very experienced offshore sailor. There was no doubt in his mind that for the course we’ve selected the best boat choice is a Class40 sailboat.

However, as we discussed here, our budget is not enough for this type of boat: we’re short $25,000. We’ve decided to give crowdfunding a try and see if maybe family and friends can help bridge the gap. We’ve got two donations already. Help us get to a good start by visiting our crowdfunding campaign to circumnavigate Earth on a small sailboat.

  • Deckhand: $25;
  • Crew: $75;

  • Watch leader: $250
  • Navigator: $500;
  • Skipper: $750;
  • Captain: $1,000;
  • Admiral: $2,500;
  • Admiral of the fleet: $5,000;
  • Neptune: $25,000.
