🇵🇦 SAN BLAS IS OPEN TO THE PANAMA POSSE

Report from Guna Yala. It's officially closed, but fine for non charter boats to come visit. Generally need to stay off islands with people living there. Veggie boat and other supplies come by every day or two. I expect they will open the road soon and we should come back to normal. We'll be here for another 6 weeks or so, happy to answer any questions.

Checking out of Costa Rica at Golfito. 

 

We spent a week at Fish Hook Marina, what a great little marina, sorta reminds you of those little marina’s along the Intercoastal waterway of southern USA. Nice restaurant and bar, really good wifi on the docks and in the restaurant and the staff is very friendly and extremely helpful. They were able to get us a car rental, help with cell service problems, and a whole slew of other things. Manny is the man! Panama Posse discount so use it! We highly recommend this Marina, and if you anchor out in front of the marina, they are just as friendly and helpful.

You can check out of Costa Rica without an agent, but it takes about 3 hours assuming you have a car. Long walks between the 3 required offices. 

1. Immigration office, about 2 Kilometers from the marina. Take all your paperwork(originals) here first and make 3-4 copies of each of the following (process is faster), boat documentation/registration, passports, crew lists. They will give you 3 packets of paperwork to give to the other offices. No fee at this office. 

2. Then onto Customs, another 2-3 Kilometers in the duty free zone. One of the packets is needed here. No fee here also, just sit and wait.

3. Then onto the port captains office, about 1 kilometer and close to the main shipping terminal. Here you give them another packet, and they send you to the Bank National, about a 1/2 Kilometer away, follow there instructions and eventually pay the $20 Port Captain Fee and another $5 for the bank commission. Return to Port Captains office and wait for the Zarpe to be processed. 

Now your done and ready to relax with a few cold one’s.

 

Hope this helps. Also, we talked to a few boats that were checking into Costa Rica here and it seems its a lot less money and hassle then it was coming into the country up North.

Port of entry and exit procedures are in in Good Nautical

We arrived in Boca Chica yesterday to check into Panama and find a safe spot to wait for a weather window to open up farther south. 

 

Checking in process here in Boca Chica is pretty well run by Carlos, with everyone coming to you. Covid tests were quick, within 3 hours, $120 Then a Doctor came onboard to fill out paperwork and ask a few questions, $95.Immigration and customs, more paperwork and another $150. Port fees and then transportation for govt officials another $220 and then Mooring fees for a week at Carlos’s place, $70 includes excellent WiFi, trash and they will even run hoses out to the boat to fill water tanks if needed. Still waiting on the Cruising permit, wont get that until Tuesday, another $200, but were waiting on weather anyway. . No one even asked for paperwork on the dog, or was even concerned about her. 

Mooring is smooth, little boat traffic. All in all, a great stop in a small town.  

Do not try to enter from the west, its a bar crossing with breaking waves and shallow water.  Best to enter at the east entrance and try to come in at high tide. 

If you need to anchor up before coming into the bay, we recommend North side of Isla Gamez, NE corner of Isla Parida, little swell and calm anchorage, sandy beaches and quiet, except for the Howler Monkeys.

SAFER EXPLORING WITH A RECORDED TRACK !          

Every time a vessel anchors or makes an approach to an anchorage or enters confined navigational areas it takes a risk - but if we record and share this information, over time, our risks become much lower - these tracks are a sequence of way points recorded into formats such as GPX or KML ( jwhich means you can open and read it with any text editor and use in OpenCPN or add to your chartplotter) PLEASES send it to goodnautuical we than add this into record into good nautical and organize it by Maritime Area. Our goal is in-the future to overlay and share these routes to your mobile device and plptter so you can follow along and reduce your risk of hitting the ground and reduce your insurance premiums - if you record and safe the tracks we all benefit

🇵🇦 PUNTA MALA, PANAMA 

🇵🇦 PUNTA MALA, PANAMA  

Punta Mala  Lighthouse Station established 1914  Active; focal plane 45 m (148 ft); white light, 5 s on, 15 s off. 33 m (108 ft) square pyramidal skeletal tower mounted on a square cylindrical concrete skeletal base. The pyramidal portion of the tower is enclosed on at least 3 sides by a slatted daymark. Entire lighthouse is white. 

HISTORIC 🇵🇦 PUNTA MALA, PANAMA  

A Historic entry in Waggoner of the South Sea describing the sea coast from Acapulco to Albermarle Isle, made by William Hack at the signed of great Britain and Ireland in Wapping. Anno 1685'.  Contents Note: Anchorage shown. Bound in 'A Wagoner of the South Sea describeing the sea coast from acapulco to Albemarle isle', an English translation of a Spanish derrotero captured from the Spanish ship 'Rosario' by Captain Bartholomew Sharpe in 1680. Hack made multiple copies of this atlas. This one was presented to James II.

Our experience with Punta Mala: we rounded (inbound for Panama City) at about 30 minutes after low tide in about 40-50’ of water and it wasn’t bad at all. Turbulence and strong currents extend for 10+ miles on both sides of the point, but if you keep to shallower water, interaction with the bottom keeps currents down. Our autopilot had a good workout dealing with the churning waters, but we didn’t have a problem with standing waves, haystacks, or other anomalies.

Our autopilot had a good workout dealing with the churning waters, but we didn’t have a problem with standing waves, haystacks, or other anomalies. 

 

The problem at Punta Mala is that the humbolt current fills the bay of Panama from the south, trying to get all the water of the South Pacific into it. When combined with a falling tide with the big ranges the bay of Panama has, the rush of water trying to leave is a true force of nature. If you go when the tide is flowing into the bay, it counters the humbolt. The current is still against you when trying to enter the bay, but less so (about 1/2 as much, 1-2 knots). This also lessens the turbulence and haystacks near Punta mala. 

 

Many posse members described their passage from Punta Mala to Panama City as the worst on the pacific coast. Typical winds make it slow, head to wind, choppy, and in a counter current the whole way.

🇳🇮 CATWEAZLE ON PASSAGE TO SAN JUAN DEL SUR  

Lovely sail round the peninsula to Nicaragua. Max 30 knots near the Cloverleaf anchorage (clover)

 

 Clearing in to Nicaragua in San Juan Del Sur is as follows:

1. Contact Eduardo as it's really too difficult to do yourself. He will ask for all your documentation to get the ball rolling.

2. He arranged a bouy $20 /night and arrange Ministry of Agriculture / Health / Immigration  etc to come to the boat.

3. After a cursory look at the food on board, the ministry of agriculture took his $25. They wanted to see our fire extinguishers and life jackets. And much form filling out was done.

3. Then we went to the bank to make a small payment.

4. Then the port Captain

5. Then the hospital (can't remember why, but nothing to do with Covid) 

6.  Then Immigration where our passports were stamped for 3 months stay.

7. Finally to the border to get the temporary import license. This is where is unravelled as they required the originals of our sailing certificate of competence and we had only taken copies. So back tomorrow.

I think that was the order but it's a bit of a blur.

🇨🇷 REPORT FROM ISLA CABALLO, CR

Two nights ago we anchored at Isla Caballo (09º 58.60’ N, 084º 58.19’ W) in Costa Rica in a smallish channel between this island and the mainland - what a nightmare. First the anchor was really difficult to set. It took us more than an hour. I guess strong currents up to 4 kn and only a thin crust of sand over rock were to blame. Then, when night came, I heard strange noises from the anchor chain... Went outside and saw something strange extending back from our boat, slightly florescent, giving it a ghostly touch. At the anchor chain I discovered that a fishing net was entangled. Apparently, the fisher are out in small boats and drag a very long net with floats and a pulsing light at the end of the net. They fish in the strong currents that way and sweep more or less the width of the entire channel. And that chap had not had his net under control really, or did not see us, despite all the many lights we had on. Then the anchor alarm went off. The combined drag of the long net in the strong current, the engine of the fisher, and our own drag & windage was too much for the poor holding ground. So, slightly panicking I decided to cut the net. Then I reset the anchor alarm and got my air pistol and my taser out, in case I had any arguments with the fisher. Sure enough they came looking for their net, shouting from one boat to the next, but they did not bother us. I decided to stay on anchor watch, which turned out to be rather useful. At almost 3 in the morning we got caught in another net. By now being a professional fishing net cutter, I watched the single fisher a few minutes in his efforts to free it, but he had no clue what to do and eventually sped away with his boat. Then I took my knife again, which was still open and ready to be deployed, lying on the cockpit table... Also this chap never came back. I then watched for the remainder of the night another of these blinking lights slowly approaching us, but before it did so, the tide turned and it started drifting away... What a night! We left at dawn under sail, when the tide was still weak and we did not have to use the engine for approaching the anchor and could let the windlass do the work, as I was not sure whether the prop had been fouled in the process. Later during the day we dived down to the propeller to see whether it was all clear. And so it was! :) No damage done around the boat, except for dirt marks from the various nets. Bottom line, I cannot really recommend anchoring there, at least not for the night... ;) 

NOTE there aare several calm anchorages in the Golfo de Nicoya nearby including Carinthia's Punta Naranjo and Isla Cedros West

MY HO’OKIPA entering this week’s CAPTAIN RON AWARD
CAPTAIN RON AWARD

 

 

Incident report: 

March 5, 2021 @ 1700 hrs - Puesta Del Sol, Nicaragua – went offshore 5 miles to empty holding tanks and make water. On the way back into the marine, the tidal flow unexpectedly pushed Ho’okipa’s stern to starboard and she clipped a channel buoy leaving a 1/4” gash in her hull starboard aft – above the water line.

After 12 hours of beating myself up, I spoke with my team (guru, mechanic and cosmetician).  We all decided it wasn’t an emergency, and not to panic.  Since the fiberglass hull was exposed, we were concerned that water would permeate into the hull and create a much bigger more costly problem. Our plan was to patch the gash until we get to Panama and pull it out of the water to do a proper repair.

On board, I have West System Epoxy Resin, including Hardener, Filler and Glass Mat sheets. Also, I have 1 gallon of Splash Zone. 

I opted for the Splash Zone for 2 reasons: a) it was a vertical patch and I felt more comfortable working with the putty of Splash Zone versus the West System which I wasn’t certain I could set up correctly on a vertical surface right above the waterline, b) I would need 3 coats of the West System epoxy and 1 coat of Glass Mat and I wasn’t sure I had epoxy material for that.

Next step was to prep the surface for the patch: grind, sand, clean and tape. Then the Splash Zone 2-part epoxy was mixed by hand with wet gloves, applied, shaped and set.

Lucky Chucky mv Ho’okipa out

Lessons I learned:

 

1. I will now pay closer attention to Captain Rob Murray and heed his advice to pay close attention and respect the tidal flows.  Here in Puesta Del Sol, there is an 8-10’ tidal flow with a 10-20 knot current. Plus, reefs, rocks, sandbars and whatnot.  The channel is winding and takes a hard portside 90 degree turn right after the bottleneck, and right before the channel buoy so I should have been more on guard to take that punch!!!

2. Don’t friggen panic.  It’s only a scratch. And forgive myself, as it’s only an accident.

3. Have lots of supplies and tools on the boat to do an above/below waterline repair.

Nuff said.

San Sebastián del Oeste

The Church of Saint Sebastian,

 

The Church of Saint Sebastian, whose original construction was in 1608, was designed in the Colonial Spanish Baroque style. It has notable architectural details, including Corinthian columns and ceiling vault frescos.

San Sebastián was founded as a mining town in 1605, during the early Spanish colonial Viceroyalty of New Spain period. Gold, silver and lead were mined in the area. More than 25 mines and a number of foundries were established by 1785. 

 most Agave species have sharp marginal teeth

 

The succulent leaves of most Agave species have sharp marginal teeth, an extremely sharp terminal spine, and are very fibrous inside.  The stout stem is usually extremely short, which may make the plant appear as though it is stemless.

 

Agave rosettes are mostly monocarpic. During flowering, a tall stem or "mast"  "quiote" develops which can grow 12 meters (40 feet) high

utilized that same weather system to sail from the Cayman Islands towards Turks and Caicos 

 The Windward PassageFri Mar 05 2021Tonight we’re navigating the Windward Passage, that stretch of water bordered by Haiti to, the east and Cuba to the west. This is certainly one of those storied stretches of water that counts as a bucket list accomplishment. However tonight it is a rather quiet stretch of water with a high pressure ridge stalled over this area, giving us a quiet weather window for our run east.Currently, we’re crossing the traffic seperstion zones, which usually indicate high traffic areas. Tonight though, there’s on one ship on AIS. All is quiet, just the way we like our night watch. We have a 1 knot “push” from the currents on the eastern side of the channel, which is helping us along quite nicely.Unfortunately, we’ve had very little sailing on this passages, motoring for almost 90% of the time. While we planned for this quiet stretch it goes against our nature to motor. That said, if we were to sail we would likely get caught Monday in 30 knot plus winds and 9’ seas which is even more not in our nature. Moo, we’ll be tucked into an anchorage off the Caicos island doing what is in our nature, having a cocktail, while that wind blows through. Here’s to weather windows. Boring but safe.Star Light, Star Bright, First Star I See TonightThu Mar 04 2021As dusk settles softly over the seas between Cuba and Jamaica I wait for the first star and I remember other nights from another time. As is often the case on Night Watch the veil between now and the past is thin. I can practical smell those magical evenings as the sun slowly set and the air was filled with anticipation. We would gather in the yards and play endless games of kick the can. Slowly night would fall until someone would notice that first star and we would pause and whisper those magical words to make that wish. What did I wish for back then? Did I wish to be a sailor, exploring distant shores? It was all so very long ago.Tonight though is now and I make my wish on the star Rigel, at the foot of Orion. This I know not because I’ve grown wise over the years but rather due to what would have seemed magic to that childhood me, am Android app, SkyMap. The magic of yesterday and we hold it in our hands, unappreciated.What did I whisper out here on the sea? Some would wish for fair winds in this position. Others a safe passage. And yet more a beautiful destination. Yet none of those even occur to me. No, I’ve learned the hard way to wish for one more Corona with a friend, feet up in our flip flops, laughing. One more slice of grandmother’s home-made cherry pie. A hug from Mom.Now, unlike when I was a child, I ponder my wishes carefully. Unlike that younger version of me, I now know that those precious wishes, like these warm starry nights, are not infinite. I only have so many and I will try and use them wisely.GARGOYLE Star Light, Star Bright, First Star I See Tonight

As early as the 1840s the British thought about digging a canal across the Isthmus of Panama, but were deterred by the hostility of the politics and geographyFrench Panama Canal Bond Certificate - 1880French Panama Canal Bond Certificate - 1880 In 1881 the French, buoyed by the successful construction of the Suez Canal in Egypt, decided to take on the project. But they did not account for the deadly mosquitoes: 22,000 of the project’s workers died after contracting malaria and yellow fever. The loss of life caused construction costs to spiral, leading to the bankruptcy of the canal’s owners in 1889 after they had spent $287m on the project ($7 billion at today’s prices). The canal lay abandoned and incomplete.French Panama Canal Bond Certificate - 1880There is a cemetery on a hillside next to the town of Paraiso , on the Pacific side of the canal entrance that, as a child, was always pointed out to me as being "the French Cemetery".   Only the French Cemetery at Paraiso appears to include Frenchmen, although it also includes West Indian laborers who amounted to the largest number of fatalities during construction days.  the French CemeteryIn 1904 the US Army was tasked* with helping construct a canal (* there is a lot more to this…) to connect the Caribbean Sea to the Pacific Ocean.The American government bought* (* there is a bit more to this…) the land in 1904 and quickly realized that it needed to protect its workforce from the diseases. To do so, it tried to kill as many of the disease-carrying mosquitoes in Panama as possible. Thousands of American troops were sent in with orders to destroy every habitat that could harbor the mosquitoes.Swamps were drained. Pools and lakes of still water were tainted with oil or simply blown up with explosives. Buildings in the area were fumigated and high-risk areas were doused with insecticide. The scale of the operation was huge: around 700,000 gallons of oil and 124,000 gallons of insecticide were used during the construction of the canal each year. And it was success, at least in relative terms. The death toll among the workforce was 5,000 by the time the canal opened in 1914.HOW IMPORTANT IS THE PANAMA CANAL ?Federal Reserve Note 50 notes1914: The first $50 Federal Reserve Note was issued with an allegorical figure of Panama between a merchant and battle ship on the reverse.One of the cruisers from a few seasons ago  met with an infectious disease specialist in early Dec at the Ochsner Medical Center in New Orleans so as to address vaccination needs related to travels. Bottom line – no Yellow Fever in the parts of Panama and CR that most plan to visit – coastal areas and San Blas. The guidance document provided for Malaria risk is low throughout the year in all areas including the Canal Zone and Panama City. Risk is highest in Darien, Guna Yala, Panam and San Blas Provinces. No Risk – Cruises along the Panama canal will not necessitate anti-malarial medication. Adopt bite avoidance measures.Transmission does not occur on the San Blas Islands, but it is necessary to transit areas with known transmission risk en route to the islands. Daytime insect precautions are essential for UN-vaccinated travelers.”https://wwwnc.cdc.gov/travel/yellowbook/2020/preparing-international-travelers/yellow-fever-vaccine-and-malaria-prophylaxis-information-by-country/panama TROPICAL STRENGTH BUG SPRAY !

Experts noted that this risk is concentrated around Kingston’s international airport, where mangrove removal has heightened the risk of flooding, both for the airport and the two-lane road which connects it to the city. While recent mangrove replanting projects have helped, this risk still remains.Under financial risk, GDP per capita, urban unemployment, and public debt indicators scored highest in the Economics category. Informal housing construction also scored as high risk. While this indicator measures national levels of informal settlements, local experts noted that unregulated construction has occurred in key watershed areas, increasing flood risk in Kingston. Under financial risk, GDP per capita, urban unemployment, and public debt indicators scored highest in the Economics category.Sample from https://www.stimson.org/2020/corvi-risk-profile-kingston-jamaica/REMINDER WEEKLY PANAMA POSSE LINE CALLS MONDAYS @15:30 UTC for CARIBBEAN  16:00 UTC for PACIFIC69 WEEKLY PANAMA POSSE LINE CALLS MONDAYSNOT PART OF THE 20·21 POSSE ?  SIGN UP NOW192 VESSELS HAVE SIGNED UP  ALREADY >>    SIGN UP  See the faces of the 20·20 Panama Posse, SEE WHO IS ON THE ROSTER >>>192 VESSELS SIGNED UPPANAMA POSSE PARTICIPANT WEBSITES SY AEESHAH >> Here is the link to Past and Present Participant Websites and Blogs.  Great experience here ...more >>>  AEESHAHAEESHAHIT WOULD NOT BE A RALLY WITHOUT A CONTEST by the end of May 2021 we will announce the winners in these highly competitive fields  BIGGEST FISH CAUGHT HIGHEST WIND RECORDED  BIGGEST MISHAP aka THE CAPTAIN RON AWARD  MOST UNWELCOME VISITOR ONBOARD SPEEDY GONZALEZ AWARDPANAMA POSSE YODA OF THE YEAR PICTURE OF THE YEAR GOOD SAMARITAN OF THE YEARMexico is in Good NauticalMexico Pacific in Good NauticalPANAMA POSSE SPONSORS 🇺🇸 California Yacht Marina, San Diego, Chula Vista - USA🇲🇽 Marina Coral, Ensenada – Mexico 🇲🇽 IGY Marina Cabo San Lucas  – Mexico 🇲🇽 Marina de la Paz – Mexico 🇲🇽 Marina y Club de Yates Isla Cortes – Mexico 🇲🇽 Marina el Cid – Mazatlan – Mexico 🇲🇽 Marina Vallarta, Puerto Vallarta – Mexico Marina🇲🇽 PANAMA POSSE HQ  – Marina Puerto de La Navidad – Barra de Navidad – Mexico 🇲🇽 Marina Ixtapa, Ixtapa – Mexico 🇲🇽 La Marina Acapulco, Acapulco – Mexico 🇲🇽 Marina Chiapas – Mexico🇬🇹 Marina Pez Vela – Guatemala 🇸🇻 Marina Bahia del Sol – El Salvador 🇸🇻 La Palma Moorings – Bahia del Sol, El Salvador🇳🇮 Marina Puesta del Sol – Nicaragua 🇨🇷 Marina Papagayo – Costa Rica🇨🇷 Marina Pez Vela – Costa Rica 🇨🇷 Marina Bahia Golfito – Costa Rica 🇨🇷 Banana Bay Marina – Costa Rica 🇵🇦 PANAMA POSSE PACIFIC HQ Vista Mar Marina – Panama 🇵🇦 Shelter Bay Marina – Panama 🇵🇦 IGY Red Frog Marina – Panama 🇵🇦 Bocas Marina – Panama 🇵🇦 Linton Bay Marina – Panama 🇨🇴 ClubNautico Cartagena – Colombia🇨🇴 Club de Pesca Marina Cartagena – Colombia🇨🇴 Marina Puerto Velero – Colombia🇨🇴 IGY Marina Santa Marta – Colombia🇯🇲 Royal Jamaica Yacht Club – Jamaica🇯🇲 Errol Flynn Marina – Jamaica 🇯🇲 Montego Bay Yacht Club –Jamaica🇰🇾 The Barcadere Marina –Cayman Islands🇭🇳 Barefoot Cay Marina – Roatan – Honduras 🇭🇳 Fantasy Island Marina – Roatan – Honduras 🇭🇳 Jonesville Point Marina -Roatan – Honduras 🇬🇹 Marina Nana Juana Resort & Boatyard – Guatemala 🇧🇿 Thunderbirds Marine – Placencia – Belize🇲🇽 Marina Makax – Isla Mujeres – Mexico🇲🇽 Marina V&V – Quintana Roo – Mexico🇲🇽 Marina El Cid – Cancún – Riviera Maya – Mexico🇨🇺 Marina Marlin Nautica Cayo Largo – Cuba🇺🇸 Marathon Marina, Florida, USA SERVICE PROVIDERS
