Re: Sailing from California to Florida via the Panama Canal
there are many bays in which to stop along the way south from kali to panama-- once past mexico there is bahia del sol, el salvador, there are many other bays in which to stop and rest an d provision. folks have done this in 27 catalinas, 27 ericsons, pearson 26, cal 28, columbia 28, many smaller boats. there is no reason a small boat cannot sail down wind and down current to panama.
and he doesnt even have to die in the process...go figger...the entire trip is down wind and down current most of year.
Hmmm, seems you're forgetting about that tiny little bit at the end, beating back out of the bottom of the Caribbean Sea and on up to Florida...
No doubt some here will say of such a notoriously boisterous passage, "No Problem", in such a boat...
For sure, that trip would be do-able... But, not by me... :-)
