South from Panama

Our plans to cross the Pacific this year have had to be postponed and we plan to go south from Panama to Ecuador, Peru and perhaps Chile.

I know what the pilot chats say but has anyone any personal experience with this route?

Re: South from Panama

We only went as far south as Ecuador which was pretty easy, if slow sailing. We met a couple of boats that were going to southern Chile and they both went Ecuador, Galapagos, Easter, Valdivia. I think they believed the pilot chart. We went via land as far south as southern Peru, the coast line seemed quite forbidding with relatively few harbours along the way.

Back home on Lake Ontario after something over 36,000 nm circumnavigator. Not surprisingly there is a lot of stuff I want to get done on Ainia both cosmetically and functionally. Getting an early start so it will be ready to go for next summer (Lake Superior?).
