The trip to Portugal from FLL did not work out, it has to delay until next year. I found another substitute sailing to Panama City from Virgins instead.
Question to those who have done this.
What is your prefer route if you have to do it again?
1. Just take the Rhumb line to Panama
2. Hug the coast of of PR
, Dominican Republic, Haiti/Jamaica and head south and hug the coast of Colombia.
3, Rhumb line from BVI to Santa Marta and Colon?
What are the ports we can seek shelter if case of weather?
It should be an easy sail with the current and trade wind. We should have enough fuel and water in one shot, but looking for Plan B and C just in case.
