Only a week ago we thought about selling our boat and even had a buyer on board. Having the idea of someone else sailing her away seemed too much and we have decided there is only one thing for us to do and that is to cross the Pacific Ocean
and take our boat home to Hobart Tasmania to live on.
This idea is now possible having recently crossed the Atlantic. My head
space has changed to the I think I can cross the Pacific Blue - my Captain
If anyone can help us with our new plans we would greatly appreciate. We hope to cross the Panama Canal
Crossing the Panama
- do you need an agent or can you do it on your own?
Are there any suggestion regarding the best route
to go from Galapagos
Islands, to arrive in Queensland
October. We still have to transit the east coast
to be in Hobart Tasmania for mid December in time for a promised Christmas
. What are the must have resources we need to take with us? Is the provisioning
good in Panama
or should we start whilst we are in a French Island at the moment?
Our boat is a Catana
42 and well set up, though we thought we might try and find a second hand genoa
that we can put on a soft furling
wire rig to work in tandom with our current genoa
. Goose-winging in the Atlantic was the way to go and our current
gennoka is great but light weight. We are interested in what others think about this sailing idea or even if we need not bother or if this is not possible with such late notice.
Any ideas and advice will be gratefully accepted and thanks in advance.
A soon to be sailing the Pacific Ocean
