Re: Sailing from California to Florida via the Panama Canal

I don't see what the big deal is. This sight makes it sound like you can't sail from here to there.
I can't tell you much about small boat sailing from Cali to Panama other than I know it can be done. From Panama north, just sail out to San Blas, hang out and have few beers till the weather is good to sail up to San Andres, hang out, maybe sail over to Miskitos, and then on up to Guanaja, maybe straight up up Isla Mujeres from there or gunk hole up the inside through Guat. and Belize. You can reach for 3 or 4 day's up to the Hump from Panama and run straight to Isla in about 7 day's total I guess. It's pretty straight forward trade wind sailing, Then it's 3 or 4 day's on up to Key West from there.
