Re: Sailing from California to Florida via the Panama Canal
Scottie55, crazy amount of responses and all over the board. I just made the trip from Pensacola, FL to Corpus Christi, TX. 700nm or more, 6 days, no experience, during hurricane season, on a boat I just bought. My 27 year old daughter, me and one experienced crewman on a Cape Dory 36. We had a beautiful experience. I have my iNavX points if you'd like them plus hourly logs with positionings. Not sure how you're going to stay awake to keep from hitting oil rigs, but it's shallow enough in a lot of areas to anchor.
Zeehag has a great attitude and I'd love to meet her. I'd lean towards her advice. Do your research, prepare for the worst, hope for the best and F'g GO!!
