Re: BVI to Panama Canal

We went direct from the Windward Passage to Panama and had a great sail with just about the right amount of wind all the way. When we were in the Eastern Caribbean and listening to Chris Parker's weather forecasts he frequently (most days) was talking about 30 knots off the coast of Colombia. That way be a winter pattern only though. Going direct the only place to stop is the east end of Jamaica.
