Currently in Placencia, Southern Belize at the moment and intending, weather permitting, to stay until mid August as it MUCH cooler
here compared to the Rio Dulce at this time of year. We have been hanging out in Belize at this time of the year for the last 4 or 5 years and we are NOT BRAVE
If you have been following the weather in the last week, especially via Chris Parker, you will have heard him refer to the “line of convergence”, effectively a line from Utilla to Belize City, everything south and west of this line has been (luckily) experiencing much lighter and better weather. We have seen this before quite a few times at this time of year
As BelizeSailor says, there are holes here to ride out tropical storms in Belize, anything bigger I personally will be out of here as Livingston is only 48 miles away but you usually get notice of what is about to happen
I do make any effort EVERYDAY
to check the weather first thing in the morning in Hurricane season and if I manage to get my SSB
working again may be doing weather on the NW Caribbean
Net on 6209 at 08:00 Belize and Honduras
time, 09:00 am Mexico
time if they need a hand.
Unless the weather stops you, I would recommend spending time in Belize on your way south, if you are deeper draft
i.e 6ft plus or do not like the look of the Cut at San Pedro (only to be done in fine weather IMHO) then enter inside the reef at English
Caye and work your way south and enjoy.
Next weekend is the Lobster fest in Placencia.
Whatever you do, enjoy it
