Let's break it down...
- Eastbound Atlantic passage... $2,331 (and change).
- Portugal to Madeira... $1,481
- Madeira/Cape Verde/Barbados passage... $3,274
- Some pottering in the southern Caribbean... $1871
- A bit more Caribbean and on to the US of A ... $2,650
You know, I could do a serious lot of mischief with nearly $12,000. Fact of the matter is, I know I could easily do a comfortable year-long Atlantic circle free and clear for that kind of money and have more fun in the process than the rally folk.
I'm pretty sure you could as well!
