Cruising in Northern Peru

Hi,

We are planning on cruising Northern Peru after coming through the Panama Canal via the Atlantic. Can anyone give us any information or share an experience. Where are the best places to stop at for a reasonable amount of time North of Lima?

Any info would be appreciated. Thanks

Puerto Malabrigo (Chicama) has the longest waves in the world. Northern Peru has strong constant east winds, sunny+warm. That's what I have experienced there!

Re: Cruising in Northern peru

Unique question on Cruisers Forum.

My link offering is the yacht club: :: YCP :: | Yacht Club Peruano

The place does look a bit restrictive: Only 4 Nudes allowed per boat!!

Whta? Throw the other naked girls overboard?

Re: Cruising in Northern peru

I thinks the sign may be indicating a speed limit of 4 knots. Naked would be desnudo.
Notwithstanding the inaccuracy, I like your cultural bias.

I'll email their Coast Guard for clarification...... and if they know where those 'sort' of girls are in Peru.

Re: Cruising in Northern Peru

Itchy - Read Tristan Jones' account of sailing SeaDart down the Peruvian coast against the Humbolt Current before you decide to try it yourself! By pure chance I was motorcycling thru the Peruvian antiplano on a Honda 250 dirtbike in '72 when Tristan trucked SeaDart to Lake Titicaca and confounded lake indians by sailing into wind.[ I shocked some native girls myself by taking a birdbath in the lake. ]
Probably the 1st to sail south along the coast of El Peru was the founder of Lima, Pizarro, he of Inca conquest fame. But that incredibly lucky conquistador unknowingly had the advantage of the 9-year window between La Nin^a and El Nin^o when winds were uniquely favorable.

If you do go, stop in at the rickety dock in Paita, coastal fishing town near Piura 150 statute mi south of N. border, and be sure and take along plenty of water, as the entire coast of Peru is desert....starting at the northern border with Ecuador.

Re: Cruising in Northern Peru

There's a number of blogs on fairly recent trips to Peru. Check the costs of checkin/checkout, as it has been astronomical for some boats. Sequitar had a bad time of it. His write ups are a little wordy, but you can find the costs in there Sequitur
