I left the UK in 2009 in my 32" cutter
It's now time to start to think about heading home to the UK. The boat is currently in Shelter Bay Marina, Colon, Panama
and the plan is to leave March/April.
Here's the question..
I'm considering two routes and would be great to hear from anyone who has experience of the routes. I'll be single
handed for the latter part of the journey, but will have a crew member
for the first part.
The objective is to be in a position for an West to East Atlantic crossing
via the Azores
to start in May/June.
East to Cartagena
and then North to Jamaica
then through the Windward Passage
toward the Turks & Caicos.
North from Panama
along Central America
I'm leaning towards option 2 in terms of getting there quicker, also think it might be a more comfortable passage
. However, option 1 offers some interesting cruising grounds including Isla de San Andres, Honduras
Anyway, would be good to hear your experience.
