Yukon 2022-2023 detailed voyage plan.

We intend sailing back to Denmark departing Franklin Tas on the 22nd of June 2022 arriving at our home island of Strynø in Denmark on the 19th of July 2023.

Legs number 1 to 6 on the Australian East Coast between Franklin and Darwin will be open to book for passengers.
Yukon will be operating under Australian 2 C survey (up to 30 miles to seaward of the Australian coast)

The following legs numbers 6 to16 between Darwin and Denmark will be open for voyage crew only.
Yukon will be operating as a non-commercial vessel and voyage crew will be vetted through application and required to contribute to the operational costs of the vessel for the time, they chose to make passage with us.

The timing of the voyage is specifically planned to avoid the Cyclone season in the southern hemisphere in the waters north of the Australian mainland which officially runs between the 15th of November to the 30th of April. Yukon needs to be north of 5 degrees south latitude before the 15th of November. It is also in our interests to make a bit of westing through Indonesian waters using the last of the Southeast trade winds before the end of November. Hence the two key departure dates Darwin at the end of September and arrival in Singapore early November.

This sets us up for a more leisurely cruising tempo around Malaysian waters in November and December for our arrival in Cochin on the west coast of India 7th January 2023
By this time, the Northeast Monsoon will be at its best for our passage over the Indian Ocean to the Red Sea.  

The Pirate situation in the Western Indian Ocean and entrance to the Red Sea (one of the reasons we paused our world voyage in 2011) has settled considerably and close monitoring of various websites, used by cruising sailors and commercial vessels alike, have indicated, no reported activity in the last three or so years.

Yukon will log onto the Maritime Security Transit Corridor or MSTC. We will not actually be sailing in a convoy as such, but we will be obliged though AIS and regular vessel skeds to be accountable for our passage time and position to remain within the save zone of this maritime corridor.     

We expect to arrive in Port Said after our Suez Canal transit around the 15th of April 2023 This begins our Mediterranean legs of the voyage taking in the lower Dodecanese islands Corinth Canal, Sicily, Sardinia, and the Balearics Islands, expecting to transit the Straits of Gibraltar medio June

On this leg on arrival in Porto Yukon’s track will cross for the first time since the world voyage in 2010 and officially our circumnavigation will be complete! 
The remaining Atlantic Coast and English Channel legs will coincide with the start of the European summer with our arrival at our home island of Strynø in Denmark on the 19th of July 2023.
