9) MUST SEE'S ALONG THE PANAMA POSSE ROUTE

MUST SEE'S ALONG THE PANAMA POSSE ROUTE Fort Jefferson – Dry Tortugas FLORIDA

Fort Jefferson – Dry Tortugas FLORIDA

During that time U.S. Navy Commodore David Porter inspected the Dry Tortugas island as he was on the lookout for a site for a naval station that would help suppress piracy in the Caribbean.

While Commodore Porter thought the Dry Tortugas were unfit for a naval station. He commanded a number of U.S. naval ships, including the famous USS Constitution and saw service in the First Barbary War. Porter was later court martialed and resigned and then

 the survey ship Florida stopped at the Dry Tortugas to evaluate the anchorage

In 1829, under recommendations from Commodore John Rodgers, the survey ship Florida stopped at the Dry Tortugas to evaluate the anchorage. Contrary to Commodore Porter’s experience, Josiah Tattnall was delighted with what he found. It consisted of 11 small keys and surrounding reefs and banks, over which the sea broke. There was an outer and an inner harbor which afforded a safe anchorage during all seasons and was large enough to let a large number of ships ride at anchor. The Dry Tortugas would constitute the advance post for a defense of the Gulf Coast.

Without being detected the seven men removed the schooners Union, Virginia, and b, and a small boat belonging to the Garden Key lighthouse keeper.

Early on July 10, 1847, under the cover of darkness, seven freedom seekers named Jerry, Jack, John, George, Ephraim, Howard and Robert fled Garden Key. They took with them every vessel that could float, a brilliant move that greatly reduced the risk of being pursued and captured. Without being detected the seven men removed the schooners Union, Virginia, and b, and a small boat belonging to the Garden Key lighthouse keeper.

Enslaved African Americans were responsible for the most difficult tasks at Fort Jefferson. They labored ten hours a day, six days a week. Using little more than wheelbarrows they offloaded arriving ships. The 16 million bricks were used in the fort’s construction. Perhaps their most arduous task was collecting and transporting large quantities of coral rock from nearby islands. This coral material served as the main ingredient in forming coral concrete, a vital component in the fort’s construction. Several of the enslaved men were permitted to bring their wives with them. These women often served as cooks and laundresses.

This is the place where Oliver North delivered weapons to the Contras (Nicaraguan rebels) at an airstrip just inland from where this wave breaks. Ollie’s Point is also a famous right point break wave, good on bigger swells, a dropping tide and most wind conditions. Located in Santa Rosa National Park.

PANAMA POSSE PARTNERS WITH ADVENTURE SCIENTISTS AND UNIVERSITY OF GUADALAJARA TO CONDUCT MEXICAN CORAL REEF STUDIES

 

Teams of volunteer divers will survey up to 40 coral reef sites multiple times a year for several years. Mexico’s Pacific Coast is harbor to some of the world’s most bio-diverse coral reefs. They support fishes, sharks, turtles, and other marine life. They also buffer the coastline from         intense storms and provide livelihoods from fishing and tourism. Yet these reefs are imperiled by ocean acidification, more frequent and powerful storms due to climate change, and damage from tourism.

 

Adventure Scientists is recruiting experienced Panama Posse participants  to provide Universidad de Guadalajara’s Dr. Paola Rodríguez-Troncoso and Dr. Amílcar Cupul Magaña with critical data to understand how climate change and human pressure are impacting coral communities. The project will provide hard data to government partners to support policy recommendations that can protect these unique reefs into the future.

 

At each field site, certified dive teams will swim five different 25-meter-long belt transects parallel to the coast. Teams will swim each of the five transects three times to: 

 

  •     Identify fish species, size, and ratio of adults to juveniles
  •     Count abundance of sea urchin, sea stars, sea cucumbers, etc.
  •     Categorize different coral types
  •     Measure contour of seafloor

 

Panama Posse  is an international maritime organization which supports private yachts on their journeys between the US West Coast and US East Coast via the Panama Canal

 

 

Adventure Scientists is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that equips partners with data collected from the outdoors that are crucial to addressing environmental and human health challenges 

 

 

Universidad de Guadalajara  Dr. Paola Rodríguez Troncoso and Dr. Amílcar Cupul Magaña are leading the study to understand how climate change and human pressure is impacting corals. 

The project will provide hard data to support policy recommendations that can protect these unique reefs into the future.

For the next couple of weeks, Roberto will be doing a "soup" kitchen, providing meals for at least 500 people daily at his restaurant. Plus food pantry (providing a bag of basic groceries)

He is still doing FREE Covid testing at his office and providing medications to treat Covid

All donations will help fund these services.

Canadian eTransfers can me made to drwooster@gmail.com

US dollar donations to Elke’s PAYPAL account: elke.gazvoda@yahoo.com

Barra has been an excellent community to all of us and we hope that the cruisers will rally our support back to the community again.

Last year after tropical storm Hernán wreaked havoc, the Cruising community here in the marina was able to fundraise several thousand dollars to buy new mattresses for about 25 people, and provide food and other necessities.
Let’s shine our love on the Barra community and help those devastated by NORA

 

 

7) MUST SEE'S ALONG THE PANAMA POSSE ROUTE

Palenque also anciently known as Lakamha “Big Water” , was a Maya city state in southern Mexico that flourished in the 7th century. The Palenque ruins date from ca. 226 BC to ca. 799 AD. After its decline, it was overgrown by the jungle of cedar, mahogany, and sapodilla trees, but has since been excavated and restored with an onsite museum. It is located near the Usumacinta River in the Mexican state of Chiapas resides at 150 meters (490 ft) above sea level.

Palenque is a medium-sized site, smaller than Tikal but it contains some of the finest architecture, sculpture, roof comb and relief carvings that the Mayas produced.

Sian Kaʼan Biosphere Reserve

Sian Kaʼan Biosphere

In the Mayan language it means "Where the sky is born". This is the name of the Biosphere Reserve that is located in the south - east of the Yucatan Peninsula, which was declared by UNESCO in 1987 "Natural Heritage of Humanity". The Reserve occupies an area of ​​528 thousand 147 hectares, where they are home to hundreds of different species of flora and fauna. Some species are in danger of extinction, therefore the Reserve is a protected area.
A dirt road starts from Tulum that, following the coastline, reaches Punta Allen. The path allows you to appreciate a wonderful landscape as well as flora and fauna. Punta Allen is a small fishing village whose boatmen cooperative offers various tours of the Reserve.

Sian Kaʼan Biosphere Reserve

In Punta Allen there is a restaurant on the beach that serves snacks and refreshing drinks as well as sea dishes.
Boat tours through the Biosphere enter the mangroves, which are home to an enormous biological diversity, both birds and fish, crustaceans, mollusks, etc. The tangled channels of the mangrove lead us first to the Laguna Negra; with a lush tropical ecosystem; to finally flow into the Caribbean Sea. The sea is turquoise blue and as it is a protected area you will find species in the wild such as starfish, turtles and dolphins that can be appreciated during the boat ride.
Sian Kaʼan Biosphere Reserve

The Sian Ka’an Biosphere Reserve is also home to part of the second largest coral reef in the world. Helped with your snorkel, visor and fins you can appreciate the corals, coral fish, manta rays and barracudas.
Five minutes by boat from the reefs are real natural pools, the Blanquizal, where you can relax in the crystalline and shallow waters of the Caribbean Sea, surrounded by an enchanting natural landscape.
