WEATHER

Prevalent trade winds bend along the coast from east really hard, especially along the northern eastern  coast between late December through April. All year long however every near-shore winds will let up  producing manageable jumps for vessels heading east. May through September, Colombia on the Caribbean side, faces long periods with hot and sticky conditions  followed but thunderstorms and as a consequence you have minimal near-shore winds. Early fall can even produce westerlies. Winds and waves are significantly reduced  closer  to shore.  As always do not sail on this coast on a schedule !

 

 

PILOT CHARTS

Pilot Charts depict averages in prevailing winds and currents, air and sea temperatures, wave heights,  visibility, barometric pressure, and weather conditions at different times of the year. The information used to compile these averages was obtained from oceanographic and meteorologic observations over many decades during the late 18th and 19th centuries.The charts are intended to aid the navigator in selecting the fastest and safest routes with regards to the expected weather and ocean conditions.
