Leaving from Panama Heading North

i just completed transit of the Panama canal and am anchored off Panama City, Panama. The crew who helped me through has left to take care of some personal business.

So I am once again looking for 1 or 2 crew to come along with me heading north. My intended itinerary is: spend a few days in Islas Las Perlas, then head to the area of Golfito, Costa Rica for a while. Then on to Golfo de Nicoya, CR. Next stay will be in El Salvador. Then it's on up the Pacific coast of Mexico.

There will be opportunities to leave the boat and fly home from these countries, though we will be anchoring out in more or less isolated places most of the time. I would like to have crew who can spend a minimum of 2 weeks on the boat because of this.

My boat is a 36ft Canadian Sailcraft. Pretty well equipped. Small, but you will have your own berth. I pay all expenses except for your transportation and eating/drinking onshore, but I work you hard . Email me with any questions about me, my boat, my expectations, or ....

If you are interested and can join the boat soon in Panama, or somewhere along the route, get back to me soon. I would like to leave Panama City next week, but can delay a bit if necessary. I believe it's possible to get reasonably priced last minute tickets on Spirit Airlines, which flies here.

Hope to hear from you soon,

Margo

Not until I saw that place receeding in my wake! What an ordeal.
But you have your own set of problems. Are you still in Oz?

Re: Leaving from Panama Heading North

Hey Zee!
I'm planning on a few days in the Las Perlas, then on to Costa Rica. I want to spend a week or so there seeing the parks, and anchoring out. Then on to El Salvador, and on to Mexico. I don't think I'll spend much time anywhere in MX til I get to Zihuateneo. I know we'll cross paths somewhere, just timing is all. If I get crew who stays, I'll move much faster. On my own I'll likely coastal hop anchoring at night.
I would love to take part in some kind do west coast SSSSM shindig if it could be arranged. Get on it, oh leader!

Re: Leaving from Panama Heading North

Margo,

My name is Chris. Until about a week ago I was a student in college pursuing a military career. I have taken extensive leadership training courses with my ROTC program for the past four years only to find out that my dreams of becoming an active duty officer were crushed by them assigning me to reserve duty. Long story short, I have decided to resign my commission and travel the world on what I have left. The only sailing experience I have is from a basic class I took in college. However, I am in excellent shape and am very quick to learn and attend to any needs you may need to make your voyage easier. I am CPR and First Aid certified. I don't get sea sick and I can read map/gps/heading very well. I am very easy going and easy to get along with. I am an avid backpacker, surfer, diver, photographer, and I am currently attempting a write a book about my journeys. Additionally, I play a little acoustic guitar and ukulele, but beware its only for hobby. I enjoy reading and being around people who bring light to the surface. I have no end in sight for my travels and I am available for long as I am breathing. I am willing to fly to wherever you are anchored and would love to get up with you to discuss this adventure. Two questions:
1. How long do you plan on sailing. (I'm looking for a long term voyage)
2. After your trip north what are your plans?

If you are interested my email is: BeAdrift at gmail.com
I look forward to hopefully hearing from you soon. Thanks for the opportunity. feel free to contact me by any means.

Re: Leaving from Panama Heading North

Hi
My name is Quim. I'm from Barcelona.
I have already finished the summer season for the Balearic Island and now I am planning to do a new trip.....┐Were?...I don't know!! Panama it's a good option!!
I can fly to any part of the world from November.
Having a look in your plans and I like it, I really think we could fit together.
In this way, It could be interesting we were in contact to value that possibility.
I have a Captain's Yacht Spain degree (equivalent Yacht Master Off Shore )with STCW'95. That is my profession, I enjoy and I want to continue sailing along new seas.I'm experienced and motivation.
Finally, I will appreciate a lot that you get in touch with me as soon as possible.
I'm expecting your answer.
Quim
