The Counter Posse starts a little bit earlier (October) to time your departure with the reduction of lighting in the area but do not get to Southern Mexico before mid November which marks the end of the Hurricane Season

YOUR ROUTE WITHOUT  A SET SCHEDULE – just avoid the HURRICANES, PAPAGAYO WINDS and pick a good TEHUANTEPEC window !

 
Relevant seminars will be recorded and made available to all participants electronically, we also host weekly line.me calls ( live ) to go over weather a.m.o.

Please keep a close eye on weather – this route has 5 distinct weather sections »

We will sail in a leisurely frog leaping fashion from Panama (Vista Mar Marina)  and heading NW starting in October of 2020 you can gunk-hole in 350+ anchorages along the way

Click on the route image below for an interactive GOODNAUTICAL map.

You are free to sail ahead – follow us later – or stay behind at any time.
The main choke points on this route are the Gulf of Tehuantepec and the Papagayo winds.
This is good training ground for reefing and weather forecasting.
