Re: Realistic sailing time to Cartagena from Florida?
I can easily look at a large chart of the Caribbean but not a good indication of current and typical wind direction, this is only to get a rough idea of how long it would take if you pushed hard to Cartagena without any sightseeing in between, not how I would want to do it but time constraints might force me to.
If It is 2 weeks from Miami to Panama - that gives me a good rough estimate - I am a few years form doing it however - and there is a good possibility I would just buy something in the area - Colombia does not have a lot of used sailboats for sale - Panama has more and a pretty close jaunt from Colon to Cartagena through the San Blas. Medellin is a great place to ride a moto but not much of a sailing location ( 5000 feet in the Andes) , the Pacific side is actually closer but very limited facilities and too many Narcos in the isolated areas,
