Hi There - I'm a Newbie Wonder About Wind

Hi friends. Prairie guy going to make my way to sailing. Can anyone tell me if it is common to sail south on the west coast from the U.S. to Patagonia Chile? What are the winds like and the currents at beneficial times of the year?

Aloha and welcome aboard!
Weather patterns have a great deal to do with which direction you will want to sail from Panama south. During El Nino years is different from El Nina weather patterns so pick the proper one.
kind regards,
