Good news and bad news re your route.

Good news is that if you leave soon you may have a reasonably pleasant winter sailing from California to Panama.

Bad news is that there are only two ways to get to Curacao from Pamana: Sailing around South America ending with a pleasant down wind sail across the Caribbean to the ABCs; or, beating your brains out sailing 700+ miles to windward through the roughest part of the Caribbean Sea.

Panama to Curacao is a case of “You can’t get there from here”.
