🇵🇦 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.

PORTOBELO - FORT SAN LORENZO PANAMA

PORTOBELO - FORT SAN LORENZO PANAMA

 Portobelo is a historic port  in the Portobelo District, Colón Panama. It lies 20 nm from the Caribbean entrance to the Panama Canal. Established in 1597 by the Spanish empire due to its deep natural harbor, it served as one of the two ports alongside Veracruz through which Spanish treasure was shipped from the mines of Peru back to Spain. The city was repeatedly captured by British privateers and pirates, culminating in a successful siege by the Royal Navy in 1739.

UNESCO designated the ruins of the Spanish colonial fortifications, along with nearby Fort San Lorenzo, as a World Heritage Site named "Fortifications on the Caribbean Side of Panama: Portobelo-San Lorenzo".

 

HISTORY

Portobelo was founded in 1597 by Spanish explorer Francisco Velarde y Mercado and quickly replaced Nombre de Dios as a Caribbean port for the transfer of Peruvian silver.

Sir Francis Drake died of dysentery in 1596 was buried in a lead coffin near Portobelo Bay, memorialised by the present Isla Drake at the entrance of the harbour.

The Spanish built an extensive network along the route of defensive fortifications.

battle-of-port-bello 

In 1601 by the English privateer William Parker captured Portobello from the Spanish. Henry Morgan captured it in 1668 with a posse of 450 privateers to overcome its strong fortifications.
It was captured again in 1680 by pirate John Coxon.

In 1726 the British suffered a disaster in their Blockade of Porto Bello under Admiral Francis Hosier, an attempt to prevent the Spanish treasure fleet returning to Spain, when due to their lengthy wait and inactivity moored at Bastimentos to the northeast a significant portion of sailors died from tropical diseases. 13 years later during the War of Jenkins' Ear the port was captured on November 21, 1739, by a British fleet of six ships commanded by Admiral Edward Vernon. Across the British Isles the name of "Portobello" was given to places and streets in honor of the victory, most notably Portobello Road in London.

Battle

The Spanish soon recovered Portobelo when in 1741 they defeated the British in the Battle of Cartagena de Indias and forced Vernon to return to England with a decimated fleet, having suffered more than 18,000 casualties. British efforts to gain a foothold on the Spanish Main and disrupt the galleon trade were ultimately fruitless. A change in tactics by the Spanish as they switched from using large fleets calling to small fleets trading at a wide variety of ports allowing them to develop flexibility that made them less subject to attack. Their vessels also began to travel around Cape Horn to trade directly at ports on the western coast.

CULTURE

Festival del Cristo Negro

Panama for its celebration of the Festival del Cristo Negro which takes place on October 21. During this festival, thousands of Panamanians travel to Portobelo and head to the Church of San Felipe, which houses the life-size wooden sculpture of the Black Christ. Christo Negro

Portobelo is renowned throughout The Black Christ is bathed in legend, some of which describe it being marooned in Portobelo by sailors while en route to Colombia. Another legend says that on October 21, 1821 the residents of Portobelo prayed to the Black Christ to be spared from a cholera epidemic that was sweeping Panama—and they were
.Christo Negro

 

Festival de Diablos y Congos
 Danza de Diablos y Congos:

It's a festival of celebration and rebellion: Every year in February, the port city of Portobelo, Panama holds the “Festival de Diablos y Congos." It's a unique local take on the widespread Carnival tradition, a five-day party with no shortage of loudspeakers, dancing — and devils wielding whips.

Danza de Diablos y Congos:

The Casa de la Cultura Congo is an open public space that hosts workshops and the creation of arts and crafts. Focusing on Congo art, the mission of the Casa de la Cultura Congo is to exalt and express the importance of the colonial Latin and African legacy in Portobelo, by bringing those traditions to life through different creative expressions.

Danza de Diablos y Congos:

PLAYA BLANCA

Outside of the town, there is a small, scenic beach known as Playa Blanca. It’s at the tip of a peninsula and only accessible by boat. Those that make the trip here will often have the whole beach to themselves.

The Castillo was designed by the Spanish engineer Ignacio Daza and construction begn in 1672, 107 years after the city's founding by Spanish Admiral and conquistador Pedro Menéndez de Avilés, when Florida was part of the Spanish Empire.
The Castillo de San Marcos is the oldest masonry fort in the continental United Statesand is located on the western shore of Matanzas Bay in the city of St. Augustine, Florida. The Castillo was designed by the Spanish engineer Ignacio Daza and construction begn in 1672, 107 years after the city's founding by Spanish Admiral and conquistador Pedro Menéndez de Avilés, when Florida was part of the Spanish Empire.

Castillo de San Marcos was for many years the northernmost outpost of Spain's vast New World empire. It is the oldest masonry fort and the best-preserved ex-ample of a Spanish colonial fortification in the continental United States. It anchored East Florida's defenses, which extended northward to the St. Marys River, westward to the St. Johns, and southward to Fort Matanzas. It protected St. Augustine from pirate raids and from Spain's major rival, Great Britain, during a time when the Florida-Georgia-Carolina coastline was an explosive international battleground.

When Britain gained control of Florida in 1763 pursuant to the Treaty of Paris, St. Augustine became the capital of British East Florida, and the fort was renamed Fort St. Mark[8] until the Peace of Paris (1783) when Florida was transferred back to Spain and the fort's original name restored. In 1819, Spain signed the Adams–Onís Treaty which ceded Florida to the United States in 1821; consequently, the fort was designated a United States Army base and renamed Fort Marion, in honor of American Revolutionary War hero Francis Marion. The fort was declared a National Monument in 1924, and after 251 years of continuous military possession, was deactivated in 1933. The 20.48-acre (8.29 ha) site was subsequently turned over to the United States National Park Service. In 1942 the original name, Castillo de San Marcos, was restored by an Act of Congress.
The roots of the Castillo's history reach back to the years just after Christopher Columbus's final transatlantic voyage, when conquistadors carved out a vast and wealthy overseas empire for Spain, first in the Caribbean and then on the mainlands of Mexico, Central America, Colombia, Venezuela, and Peru. Products of these tropical and mountainous territories brought high prices on the Continent, and Spanish galleons sailed home laden with exotic dyes, sugar, tobacco, chocolate, pearls, hardwoods, and silver and gold. These so-called "treasure fleets" made Spain the most powerful and envied nation in Renaissance Europe.

After attempting unsuccessfully to board the French ships anchored there, Menendez sailed to a harbor farther south and estab-lished St. Augustine as a base for further operations. Almost immediately a French fleet sailed south to attack. But the ships were driven southward and wrecked by a violent storm and the mission failed. Re-alizing that Fort Caroline would be lightly guarded, the Spaniards marched north, captured the fort, and executed most of the inhabitants. The same fate befell survi-vors from the French fleet, whom the Span- iards captured and killed at an inlet 14 miles south of St. Augustine.

Thanks to the travels of Ponce de Leon in 1513, Spanish navigators knew that the best return route from Spain's rich Caribbean possessions was along the Gulf Stream, through the Bahama Channel, and past the shores of Florida. The Spanish knew they must defend this peninsula to prevent enemies from using its harbors as havens from which to raid the passing treasure fleets.

GULFSTREAM

In 1513 Spain claimed Florida through the expedition of Ponce de Leon, but France gained the first foothold there by establishing Fort Caroline on the St. Johns River in 1564. Seeing this as both a challenge to Spain's claims and a menace to the treasure fleets, King Philip II sent an expedition under Don Pedro Menendez de Aviles to eliminate the French threat and establish settlements in Florida. It arrived at the mouth of the St. Johns River in September 1565.

The same fate befell survivors from the French fleet, whom the Spaniards captured and killed at an inlet 14 miles south of St. Augustine. The episode gave a name to the area: Matanzas, Spanish for "slaughters."

England became Spain's next contender for Florida.
England became Spain's next contender for Florida. The Spanish had watched the English warily ever since Sir Francis Drake attacked and burned St. Augustine in 1586. They became even more watchful after English-men settled Jamestown in 1607. British pirates sacked St. Augustine again in 1668, and this hit-and-run attack, followed by the English settlement of Charleston in 1670, caused Spain to build the Castillo de San Marcos.

Begun in 1672 and completed by 1695, the Castillo replaced nine successive wooden fortifications that had protected St. Augustine since its founding. The fort's commanding location on the west bank of Matanzas Bay allowed its guns to protect not only the harbor entrance but the ground to the north against a land attack.

Old Map
The Castillo's baptism of fire came in 1702 during the War of the Spanish Succession, when the English occupied St. Augustine and unsuccessfully besieged the fort for 50 days. The English burned the town before they left, but the Castillo emerged unscathed, thereby making it a symbolic link between the old St. Augustine of 1565 and the new city that rose from the ashes.

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  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.

Our last day on the road trip we did a walking tour of the historic central square of Guadalajara, a city almost 500 years old. We visited cathedrals, art halls and of course a bar celebrating it's 100th anniversary. We filled up the trip with a great Argentinian steakhouse dinner. Back to the boat now and time to prep for departure. Was a great week and I'm so happy to have shared all the experiences with the beautiful Tara Lee

🇳🇮 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
