Live as it happens!

We are 55 nm off shore and this little swallow flew around the bridge of the boat twice and then came in and sat by the window!

He then flew out and came in and is now sitting on Sandy’s arm.

He/she must be pretty tired and tuckered out to do this. He can stay as long as he wants!

10) MANUEL ANTONIO 🇨🇷  COSTA RICA 
PARK UPDATE

COSTA RICA MANUEL ANTONIO PARK

The quintessential Panama Posse anchorage @ Manuel Antonio Park CR 

MANUEL ANTONIO
Park Anchorage

It
was established in 1972 and considered the smallest of any Costa Rica
national park. It is well known for its beautiful beaches and hiking
trails. In 2011, Manuel Antonio was listed by Forbes as among the
world’s 12 most beautiful national parks.

Thanks
to your write up  and seminar video we were able to enter Manuel
Antonio Park, CR. But there are new details/rules to follow.

https://manuelantoniopark.com/

*The park is now CLOSED on TUESDAYS ( not Monday )

*Anchoring
at the park requires an in person deposit at Banco Nacional (there’s
one in Quepos) prior to anchoring. The park ranger did not give us the
account number. He tried to purchase online with us but couldn’t, we
bought two kids’ admissions ($10usd)for our $8usd anchorage instead. I
don’t think they will allow that purchase again.

*
IT’S “ILLEGAL” TO ENTER THE PARK BY THE BEACH WHERE YOU ANCHOR. (To
quote angry park ranger) Especially before 7am, park’s first entrance
time. (If you want to try to enter by the park beach, wait until people
arrive to mix in with the crowds.Then walk through park to front
entrance. They are watching.) Technically you must come to shore at
Espadilla Beach and enter through the official entrance. 

*You can’t leave anything on the official park...

Manuel Antonio

From Pez Vela marina regarding Manuel Antonio Park, CR:

With the payment of the anchorage fee you can enter the beach with a dinghy dinghy.

You
must have with you the proof of payment and the entrance fees because
the park rangers will ask for them and you can only access one of the 3
beaches of the national park, we believe it is #2.

We also share with you the website where you can buy tickets to the national park. https://serviciosenlinea.sinac.go.cr/

14) MUST SEE FROM YOUR YACHT   🇧🇿 BELIZE 

Belize
is a nation on the eastern coast of Central America, with a relativly
small population of just 400,00 people with the Caribbean Sea shorelines
to the east and dense jungle to the west. Offshore, the massive Belize
Barrier Reef, dotted with hundreds of low-lying islands called cayes,
hosts rich marine life. Belize’s jungle areas are home to Mayan ruins
like Caracol, renowned for its towering pyramid; lagoon-side Lamanai;
and Altun Ha, just outside Belize City. English is the official language
of Belize, but most of the population also speaks a creole patois.
Yucatec, Mopán, and Kekchí are spoken by the Maya in Belize.

Woman in Belize

ALTUN HA IS A MAJOR CEREMONIAL CENTER IN BELIZE 
 OCCUPIED DURING THE CLASSIC MAYAN PERIOD. 

Altun Ha

Thirteen
structures surround two main plazas at the site.  The two tallest
temples, Temple of the Sun God (the structure depicted on Belikin beer
bottles) and Temple of the Masonry ALtars, rise 60 feet above the grassy
plaza floor.  

https://panamaposse.com/altun-ha

Perhpas
Altun Ha’s most famous  Pendergast’s discovery of a huge jade
headed replica of Kinich Ahau, the Sun God, in 600 and was owned by an
elderly priest.  At the time of its discovery, this priceless relic
was the largest of its type ever recorded in the Maya world – almost 6
inches tall and weighing nearly 10 pounds.  On rare occasions this
Kinich Ahau repllica is taken on exhibition tours.

Altun Ha

Altun
Ha covers an area of about 5 square miles and includes an extensive
swamp north of the plazas.  It’s believed that up to 10,000 people
lived here during the Classic period of Maya civilizatin, as late as
A.D. 1000.

Altun Ha

Altun
Ha was  settled long before the Classic Mayan as many as 2,000
years ago.  For a Mayan City, the site is unusual.  The soil
is thin which may indicate that it was a traiding center rather than
anagricultural community

t was an mayor link in the coastal trade routes, and had contact with Teotihuacan at an early time in Maya history.

This is one of over 40+ MUST SEE SITES ALONG THE PANAMA POSSE ROUTE 

https://panamaposse.com/must-see

15) DRAKE BAY 🇨🇷 COSTA RICA 

Great find in Drake Bay to get in the nature and hike, for free! 

DRAKE'S BAY

Drake Bay Hiking Trail starts from the west/south end of the beach. 

Drake's Bay

We
just had an amazing walk/hike through the jungle and past gorgeous
beaches(in water shoes no problem) to arrive at San Josecito Beach.

Drake Bay

 It took us 3 1/2 hours one way including a small boat across the river near high tide ($2usd per person)

Drake Bay

 We are feeling so good about this experience and 

On the beach looking north

the freedom to explore on our own, not so bummed about the organized tour after all.

ALONG THE PANAMA POSSE ROUTE

https://panamaposse.com/longlines

*
These are reported long line locations by fellow mariners - this is
simply a collection of reports and by no means offers an accurate
picture or does not guarantee safety as they are moved and deployed
often. Mexico alone has over 100,000 pangas.

11) STARLINK FEEDBACK JANUARY 2023

STARLINK ON BOATS, YACHTS, RV'S AND REMOTE LOCATIONS
  1. In
    Red Frog Marina. Plugged it in. Picking a movie on Netflix that
    evening. Good (but not great) service to St Andres, Columbia. 
  2. Hey
    there, as requested here is our experience with Starlink. I’m still
    working full time as an iOS developer for a company in California. As
    such I need to have internet most weekdays. We came down from California
    as far as Chiapas, hopping from cell signal to cell signal and moving
    only on weekends. Last May in Chiapas we got Starlink shipped to us (the
    older round dishy) and since then have decided to head back up to
    cruise the Sea of Cortez before we leave Mexico. We had only gone as far
    up as La Paz due to the scarcity of cell coverage up in the Sea. It’s
    pretty much a game changer. We are currently in Zihuatanejo, having just
    spent an entire month in the bays of Huatulco. Previously we only
    stayed in Tangolunda and Marina Chahue. This time with Starlink we were
    able to visit most of the bays. It does draw down our batteries though. I
    have it trimmed down to just run off of DC without the inverter and
    have the internal motors disabled. Still it seems to consume a steady 3A
    and more when it boots up or it’s doing intense data transfers. We have
    been turning it off at night to save power and will probably need to
    add more solar to balance our energy budget. It’s also great to be able
    to check the weather at any time on passage and stay in touch. Although
    sometimes I wish we could be more “off the grid”.
  3. Both
    of us still working remotely while cruising, so a robust data
    connection for Zoom calls has been a requirement. Before we got Starlink
    in May 2022, we would arrange our passagemaking based on where we would
    have access to cellular data and/or wifi via booster. This meant, as
    much as possible, we would travel on weekends (or take days off), and
    anchor / stay at marinas only in locations with access to a data
    network. Not having access to a decent connection (e.g. slow and/or
    interrupted) was an endless source of frustration. Starlink has
    completely changed that. Shortly after we installed Starlink (in La Paz,
    Mexico), we travelled to Isla San Francisco for a test run. Sure
    enough, we had a robust connection and were able to stay connected
    throughout the journey. It was amazing! We were liberated from limited
    infrastructure!  Our cruising grounds are now defined to where we
    have access to Starlink. None in South Pacific? We’ll wait? Available in
    Pacific Central America and Caribbean? Off we go!  In addition to
    enabling remote working, Starlink also serves as a Safety device (real
    time weather reporting and communication), and entertainment (streaming
    videos). As and when coverage is truly global and robust, we’ll replace
    our SSB and Iridium with Starlink only.  It’s a real game changer!
  4. Pros:
    Being
    able to work/make $ in remote areas where there is no service. This
    allowed us to sail on week days when there were good weather windows and
    not just motor sail to accommodate a week day work schedule.

    Pretty cheap $135/mo and I think it’s half that cost if you buy a Mexican one.
    We had service the down the entire pacific coast Baja which is an internet dead zone.
    Allows us to contact marinas or agencies ahead of time for parts/services.
    Makes it easier to connect with friends/family.
    Cons:
    It’s a bit power hungry: uses 5-8 AMPs of juice while on (up to 8 when satellite moves) 
    After about 30 miles offshore it does not always work… but sometimes it does.
    Easier
    to be in the phone more and not disconnect from society a bit (which is
    one of the things I love about being in remote areas) 

    Some
    people have reported being “kicked off/geofenced” after 2 months of
    being out of the country of origin. We are about to hit our 2 month mark
    so I’ll keep you posted. 
  5. By far weather a matter of minutes if not seconds compared to any other means Contact with family and friends Trivia!
    Cheers
  6. We
    got our starlink in Chiapas. It has been a game changer. While in
    Chiapas we had marginal cell service and very limited WiFi. Once we got
    starlink I was able to enable WiFi calling and take care of all
    emergencies without having to take a taxi in to Tapachula to sit at
    Starbucks when we needed internet. When we arrived at Bahia del Sol
    starlink didn’t work, we had marginal WiFi and decent local cell
    service. After about a month it started working, once again we were able
    to take care of any issues that arose easily. We had nothing while in
    the Golfo de Fonseca. When we arrived at Puesta del Sol Nicaragua, we
    were greeted with marginal WiFi and very weak 3g cell service. Here
    there is nowhere to go if you need internet access, but here Starlink
    works. 
  7. Hi,
    We have had it since Panama. At that stage it did not work in Panama as
    the government had not signed up but now they have. It worked all te
    way from there to 12 miles off Belize then stopped as trey have not
    signed up either. Worked well once departing or Mexico and all the way
    to Jamaica.  It stops working in really rough seas and will cut in
    and out. Often works better than the local networks.  Not a
    replacement for iridium at the moment due to to inconsistency in bad
    weather but saying that it is much quicker and often picked up before
    the iridium had finished downloading the weather. Cheers 
  8. There
    is one word that comes up using Starlink on board a boat and that is
    “game changer” This is when a new disruptive technology comes along and
    within a year, becomes the standard for boaters. A year ago, Starlink
    had 70,000 users worldwide , and now they have 1.4 million We now have
    high speed internet on board, which means we can get immediate
    Predictwind Offshore weather routing, can do Facetime calls with our
    family, do our banking, watch Youtube on our cell phone whilst underway
    and then enjoy a movie on TV, all from the comfort of our boat while
    underway or at anchor. Before Christmas, I had uninterrupted service on
    my non stop run from La Paz to Puerto Vallarta. As I type this, I have
    just left Zihuatanejo en route on a 360 non stop trip to Huatulco, all
    while being connected. 

    Thank you Elon Musk!
  9. You
    asked about starlink. We have just used it in Mexico since October.
    We’ve crossed from puerto Vallarta to Baja, north in the sea of Cortez,
    and back again to Mazatlán. We’ve had a few random drops for a few
    minutes here and there, but generally it has been very reliable. And
    fast - faster than our home internet in the US.  It’s a game
    changer in several ways - we were able to FaceTime with our daughter to
    learn that we will be grandparents - so staying connected with family is
    so much easier.  Getting weather forecasts is easier than with the
    iridium (and at half the price of the iridium). We are able to manage a
    short term rental in the US with starlink - we just couldn’t do it
    otherwise.  The dark side and challenge is to not let access to the
    internet rob us of the experiences we are here to find. It takes a bit
    of discipline. Overall, an amazing positive tool for cruising. 
  10. 22-23
    is our second year full-time cruising . We have been exploring the
    Pacific side of Mexico and the gulf of California. We installed our
    Starlink this year.  In our first year we had very little coverage
    around Baja (outside and inside). Outside we could sometimes send a text
    message. One time we had a family issue and it took days to find wifi,
    finally in Bahaia Asunción. Pacific Mexico we got a Mexican SIM
    (Movistar) and spent many, many hours learning to use it properly
    (refills, management, unlocking phones, etc). Our provider in the US,
    t-mobile threatened to turn us off three times. Inside Baja in the
    spring we went weeks without anything but small texts and emails through
    Iridium.  Starlink has made communication far easier, we hardly
    think about being in touch, we’ve saved tons on local SIMs, and T-Mobile
    hasn’t threatened to cut us off. It took propwr planing to mount and
    power the Starlink but so far it’s been a real benefit. 
  11. How
    we use our SL, it’s a two edge sword, information paralysis &
    superior unlimited access to the internet right from my boat.

    - set my iPhone to utilize WiFi calling.  No more searching for local telco chips an recharging these with more bits
     for weather and route planning I can quickly utilize a variety of products; NOAA, windy, predict wind
    - update my onboard electronics with the latest firmware anytime 
    - pursue remote work opportunities 
    - troubleshoot onboard systems effectively, download diagrams, order items online, chat with systems experts
    - download charts, guides, reference material for travel
    - 1st mate is happy, cause it just works
    Summary,
    All online activities are done more quickly; security is no longer an
    issue/concern for banking an purchasing things. No more trying to best
    manage a limited amount of data available….

    And I can stream online content whenever I want.  
    Sometimes I need to turn it off, just put down the device(s) and enjoy the here and now. 
    Regards,

STARLINK

12) MUST SEE FROM YOUR YACHT   🇧🇿 BELIZE 

Belize
is a nation on the eastern coast of Central America, with a relativly
small population of just 400,00 people with the Caribbean Sea shorelines
to the east and dense jungle to the west. Offshore, the massive Belize
Barrier Reef, dotted with hundreds of low-lying islands called cayes,
hosts rich marine life. Belize’s jungle areas are home to Mayan ruins
like Caracol, renowned for its towering pyramid; lagoon-side Lamanai;
and Altun Ha, just outside Belize City. English is the official language
of Belize, but most of the population also speaks a creole patois.
Yucatec, Mopán, and Kekchí are spoken by the Maya in Belize.

MAYAN SITE LAMANAI  “aka Submerged Crocodile” 

https://panamaposse.com/lamanai
During the Spanish conquest of Yucatán Spanish friars established two Roman Catholic churches here, but a Maya revolt drove the Spanish out.

Lamanai
is renowned for its exceptionally long occupation spanning three
millennia, beginning in the Early Preclassic Maya period and continuing
through the Spanish and British Colonial periods, into the 20th
century. 

Unlike most Classic-period sites in the southern Maya lowlands, Lamanai was not abandoned at the end of the 10th century

21) ⚠️SHALLOW WATER @ EL CID 

Went in about two weeks ago. We draw 7.5’. Our depth sounder was out, but a buddy boat measured about 8’ at zero tide. When you enter, stay left, VERY close to the wall. The dredge will likely be on the wall inside a bit, stay very close to the dredge. We were only about two to three feet off the dredge. Once you’re beyond the dredge, depths open up a bit. Sister ship went aground in a slip in El Cid, so be sure to check your slip depth. Marina Mazatlan was quite deep. Watch for trash, some of it looks like buoys. Also, don’t be fooled by the buoys near the entrance, they’re marking shoals / a wreck, NOT the channel. STAY LEFT.

Just a heads up for any Posse cruisers coming to Santa Marta marina in Colombia. Be sure to have sufficient lines and chafing gear. The winds inside the marina blow 20-30 knots g 40 on a fairly regular basis. There are often white caps inside the breakwater. Other than that, Colombia is a wonderful country and extremely inexpensive.
Happy holidays!

First Aid Kit(s) for Cruising by Rob Murray

When we prepared Avant for offshore six years ago, we looked carefully at what we would pack for first aid preparedness. We could easily imagine a wide range of scenarios where one or the other of us, or another cruiser or local, was injured (grievously), and needed first aid in an inconvenient, remote location. You know, unconscious bleeding from a compound fracture surrounded by crocodiles while darkness falls in some mangrove swamp, or something like that. We determined that:

We needed to be able to react to a broad variety of potential medical emergencies quickly and comprehensively;

That we would likely be short handed in responding (so the response would have to be easily transported by one person);

That the emergency may happen aboard Avant, aboard another vessel, or ashore so we would need to be able to move the appropriate materials for response to the injured person, and then move the injured person from the site of the incident back to Avant or from the site of the incident to another place for treatment or evacuation;

That we would be at least hours, and might be days or even weeks from professional medical facilities and professional medical help (so we would need enough supplies to treat issues for a prolonged period with instructions on how to use them);

That there were ‘levels’ of response that would be appropriate, so segregating supplies into appropriate kits suited to different levels of response would make sense; and

We would need reference materials suited to the kind of ‘medicine’ we would be practicing.

Before you carry on reading, please note that we’re over prepared. Period!

First, we looked for organizations that had worked systematically to solve this set of problems so we could emulate their methods and techniques. The military immediately came to mind, as they have applied science and rigour to responding to emergency medical situations in rustic locations (although they admittedly seem to focus on gunshot wounds and extreme blunt force trauma as the primary sources of injury). We also read up on mountaineering and other wilderness response experiences, and found the ‘prepper’ community had many guidelines, tips and resources that seemed useful. The Ministry of Transport in the UK also had relevant resources. While many sources suggested that buying supplies separately would be cheaper than buying a kit, we found the reverse to be true, and that the kits we looked at offered value as well as convenience.

So after our obsessive research, we equipped ourselves with a simple ‘boo-boo kit’ for day to day stuff.

 

This is the type of kit you see in a larger drug store, Costco, Walmart, or some other big box store. You can buy them online at Canadian Safety Supplies. They are also available from the Red Cross, St Johns Ambulance or similar organizations online. It’s portable, so we don’t have to drip blood on the way to the bandaids; soft sided so it’s easy to store, and reasonably comprehensive for small injuries. It unzips and flops open to display the contents when in use. There is plenty of room in the carry bag to augment the contents.

SY WANDERLUST 🇺🇸 Kristin & Fabio & Yoda - Seawind 52′

Hello! My husband Fabio, pup Yoda and I are new to the Panama Posse and South Pacific Posse so I figured I’d say hello. 😊 We’ve been on the Caribbean side of Panama since June, had our boat hauled at Linton Bay to do work, spent some time in San Blas and are now at Red Frog in Bocas del Toro. 

We’re planning to transit the canal at the end of January, then cross the Pacific probably in March. We’d love to connect with other group members! 

We do have a YouTube channel and have documented our time in Panama. We’ve tried to provide helpful information so take a look if you’re interested in learning more cruising the Caribbean side of Panama.

FEATURED PARTICIPANT WEBSITES

MEET THE FLEET QUE VENDRA

Hi
there, this is Olena and Maciek. We are a couple from the Puget Sound
area in Washington State, USA. In 2021 we left our land life and jobs,
sold our house, and embarked on a southbound journey to Mexico, on our
Outbound 46 – Qué vendrá. We were born and raised in Poland, got married
there, and then through a set of moves migrated to Canada and then to
the United States, to Washington state. Like most new transplants we
focused on building our life in the new land. But we also spent time
traveling and exploring our newfound homeland, near and far. As part of
that, we picked up sailing around 2004, starting in a local Seattle
sailing club. After several years of chartering, we bought our first own
boat, and then several years later switched to a bigger one. In 2020,
right before the pandemic hit, we got our third and current boat with
the goal of cruising longer term. We pressed on with our plans, despite
the pandemic. We are now wrapping up our first full-time cruising season
in Mexico and planning for the next set of adventures.

Many
Panamanians are superstitious and have certain rituals they believe
must be done as we cross from one year to the next.  Panamanians
traditionally spend New Years eve with friends and family.

EFFIGY:
Throughout Panama at this time of year, you’ll see effigies, or
life-sized dolls. The effigy, also called a Judas doll,  represents
someone or something they dislike. 

hese large replicas have various names, including muñecos de año viejo (old year dolls), muñecos judas (judas dolls), or simply muñecos (dolls). The dolls are a way to ring in the new year in the area. Muñecos are typically made with a wood or metal frame, old clothes, and stuffed with leaves and firecrackers. They are then thrown into a bonfire on the strike of midnight on New Years’.

Some
of the dolls are stuffed with firecrackers. At the stroke of midnight,
they are lit on fire and beaten. According to folklore, by beating and
setting the effigies on fire, the sins and evil spirits of the old year
are destroyed. Making way for good fortune in the new year. The fire
crackers are said to help drive the evil spirits away.
