i have an auto pilot for deliveries such as this

would be inclined to go via puerto amistad, equador as galapagos is charging $1000 for a stop there
and why would you go to cocos one you need a permit there is no fuel or water unless you buy it from dive boats I live in costa rica and have been many times to cocos, don't make the mistake that so many others have made unless you know what you are doing

that was the route the owner suggested,i however would probably head into the gulf of panama with the north easterlies as far south as i could,then head down the ecuador coast untill i hit the south easterlies as far as puerto amistad or points south.

then motorsail the last 1000 miles ducking in on the coast on the way south.

heading offshore around the high would add another 1200+ miles to the trip

Re: From El Salvador to Chile

I've done 3 transatlantics 2 handed without autopilot. Its a bit tiring but I got into the habit of heaving to for the evening meal and we manage pretty well with balancing the sails. Apart from the tourism aspects a bit further South, I'd be inclined to virtually do a straight shot....then on to the next delivery!! Tony

Re: From El Salvador to Chile

We are experienced, both licensed yacht skippers, my work partner had experience of 15 years on the sea ; as chef engineer, mechanic, captain, deck hand, has been on the water since he was 17, working on tug boats, tankers, cruise ships and sailing yachts from the Pacific to the North Sea.
Im also licensed captain, have experience (6 years ) as a captain and chef cook on charter yachts in the Pacific and Caribbean waters.
My work partner speaks English and Spanish, I speak English, Polish and have basic knowledge of Russian and Spanish. (Passports and nationalities; American , Polish and Panamanian)
We are located in Panama, on my sailboat ( 56 foot Mikado), and normally we run it as a charter boat, but since is the beginning of low season here, we are looking for work.
We are ready to hire for boat delivery, we both can do the job for the price of one, but with total coverage of our costs ( flights ) from /to Panama (Central America)
