Maybe we'll see you down there Kelpie.
My wife and I are planning the same sort of season. We're heading down from Maryland
in November next year to the Islands and then the Pacific.
We're planning on Bermuda
first, but then we're looking at the same issues and concerns as you. We want to see it ALL, but we also want to get to the Pacific.
thinking is to hop the islands from November to January and then head
for the Canal
. That means lots of places missed, but we both think there's a high probability we'll retire to the islands to remain close to the USA and family
obligations when we're done sailing our circumnavigation
Of course all of this is based on the hope that by next year, vaccines have safely been made available, borders are open-ish, and we have increasing options on where we are allowed to sail.
If not, we'll probably stay in the islands until April / May then head
back to Maryland
or down to Grenada until hurricane season is over, then go straight to the canal
at the end of 2022
