Re: BVI to Panama Canal

The big wave action off the north coast of Columbia is exhilirating. it's like taking the double black diamond trail on a big sky mountain. it's can be as much as 200 miles across from north to south in the winter. It's serious and I have had some real neat sails across it. Last time was in a 27 foot Benny. Imagine a 20 foot swell with a 100 foot base, and a 4 foot swell in top of it like hershey kiss shape, and 2 foot of curling chop on top of that, just to give you a nice splash slam, and every fith set is just a big curing monster of all that combined. I kind of like it for some bizzar mascacistic reason, but it's not for the faint of heart.
