I'm in the early stages of planning a trip from Seattle
to Boston via Panama
. I've sailed most of the west coast
, east coast
and N. Caribbean
- but have never done anything in the gulf (other than vacations to Belize
and Costa Rica).
I've heard piracy
is an issue along Columbia
but would love to sail up the windwards starting at the ABCs.
I guess the other option is to sail north from Panama
which would be pretty cool (Honduras, Belize
Island chains) but then you're sailing along Cuba
. Is that a nightmare of paper work for Amercans (or even allowed)?
I'd love to hear from people who've done these routes.
Also - if anyone has book recommendations from people who've done this (in the last 10-15 years) I'd love to hear about those.
