- Do you have a list of required equipment and or required safety standards all participant boats must meet? Also, suggested equipment, set-up, training, licensure (eg SSB) ?
- I’m likely to participate as either a single-hander or as a single-hander with crew for blocks of time. Is that acceptable for participants (and if so, have you had some solo sailors participate so far)?
- I imagine that budgets vary widely and wildly across participants, but if you had any rough “brackets” of what participants are claiming to have spent even anecdotally, it would be useful.
What do past participants have to say about the Panama Posse ?
“We absolutely loved the Panama Posse! We enjoyed having the latest information on marinas, anchor spots, grocery shopping, laundry, and country check-in or out. Very valuable. And even better was the wonderful friendships made with lots of great people! Many thanks for heading up a fantastic rally.”

The only thing better than anchoring at Ballena Bay Costa Rica after a full and beautiful day running south along the coast? Doing it with a small flotilla of fellow cruisers from the Panama Posse…
“Joining the Panama Posse was the best decision we made last year. Not only did we meet great people traveling the same coastline but the shared intel on anchorages and check-in procedures was invaluable!! We would highly recommend it to anyone choosing to travel this route.”

“Greetings my friends, Thought Janet and I would tell of our experience with the Panama Posse. The 2018 Posse had 83 boats! We didn’t meet all boats but the boats we met and traveled with were very appreciated as we entered uncharted waters in Central America. It’s a good feeling when you can stop by a boat or call on a radio looking for a opinion on weather or ports of entry. Panama Posse ROCKS !!”
