Written by Alan Phillips who has done it all TWICE ! The Milk Run is the easiest and warmest possible route to circumnavigate the world. If you are thinking about sailing around the world and if your object is to sail as easily and safely and warmly as possible with a minimum of hardship and a maximum of pleasure then you need to take the Milk Run Route The Milk Run Route uses the trade winds to cross the major oceans and avoids tropical revolving storms (i. e. hurricanes, cyclones and typhoons). There are many variations of this plan but the critical planning factors which must be taken into account are the following; CRITICAL PLANNING FACTORS Because of the direction of the spin of the earth the world circling trade winds blow from east to west. You must use the trade winds to cross the major oceans. ( The tradewinds blow in winter) You must stay out of the hurricane areas. ( Hurricanes occur in summer). The Mediterranean is best in the summer The Red Sea is best in spring Cars crash, diseases appear from nowhere, loved ones die, careers evaporate. There is no safety. Misfortune can hit anywhere anytime. There is nowhere to hide. The Atlantic crossing in the trade wind belt is from Canary Islands to the Caribbean in the northern winter. In the North Atlantic Ocean the trade winds blow from November to April between latitudes 3 degrees to 25 degrees. Then the hurricanes can occur in the northern summer between latitudes 5 degrees and 30 degrees. They are most dangerous from August to October. The Pacific Ocean crossing from Panama to New Zealand is in the southern winter. Then through Panama Canal and down into the Southern Hemisphere looking for the trade winds in the southern winter from April to October between latitudes 3 degrees and 25 degrees. The cyclones (hurricanes) occur in this ocean in the southern summer from November to March between latitudes 5 degrees and 25 degrees. They are most dangerous from January to March.
