We’re two girls currently sailing around the world to explore some of the worlds best diving
. We sailed from Denmark
last year and are currently in the Dominican Republic
, trying to plan our next year of sailing.
Our original plan was to sail through the Panama Canal
in October this year, and then make our way NW towards Baja California
Sur to spend a season there before crossing the Pacific ocean
around April 2025. However we’re now considering to skip out on Baja California
Sur, and instead do the Pacific Crossing leaving around the end of September/start October from Panama
, possibly with a stop on Cocos Islands on the way.
Reading cruising guides
it is advised everywhere to cross the pacific before may, to get as much out of the season in French Polynesia
as possible, before having to shelter in the Marquesas
Islands for the hurricane
season. However this isn’t very important to us, as we’ll probably stay for 1,5-2 years in FP.
We do however have a concern regarding weather
being unsure if we would be more exposed to hurricanes during this time, or oppesite if there is risk of having no wind
at all on the passage
in these months.
Is there anyone that has done this route
at similar time of the year? Or anyone who can shine some light on why you WOULDN’T do the passage
around that time?
would be greatly appreciated! If it has any influence, we are sailing in a Beneteau
50, Bruce Farr design from 2002. We can be reached either here or through messaging on instagram @drommeisigte, email firstname.lastname@example.org
