PANAMA POSSE

20·21 PANAMA POSSE
FLEET UPDATE 2021-01-30

 
We must free ourselves of the hope that the sea will ever rest. We must learn to sail in high winds. – Aristotle Onassis

The inevitable south bound migration of the Panama Posse              

The inevitable south bound migration – here is an impromptu gathering at Marina Chiapas with 10 Panama Posse vessels on the docks

Congrats to all for a safe passage across the Tehuantepec

BURGEE SIGHTINGS 

Welcome to the Panama Posse SY SUR 

 

 

Greetings Panama Posse Voyagers 

We’re a few months into this 20-21 season and while it’s been wonderful and inspiring to follow your adventures we would love to gather more video stories so we can share them at the end of the season in a longer, compilation video.

 

We invite, encourage and politely request that you share more of your journey via video.

The great news is  you are carrying a professional video camera right in your pocket,
yup your cellphone!

All we are asking is that you take a moment and record a quick video journal that includes:

 

  • Your name & vessel name
  • Where you currently are & which route you have been on
  • Where your are heading this season ?

 

What to share:

  •     Stories of places you visited
  •     Adventures you have had or Misadventures you had to overcome
  •     Did something break that you had to fix
  •     Have you met anyone unforgettable
  •     Tasted any incredible food or beverage 

 

Please turn your camera/phone horizontal when you make the video and perhaps someone can film you vs a selfie…

Please send any additional photos of videos that compliment the stories you share and remember to make a mark.

When you are ready to upload email us at news@panamamposse.com and we’ll send you an upload link.

Maritime Climatology

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 and is divided into 12 months

 

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 mariner in selecting the fastest and safest ocean and coastal routes with regards to the expected weather and ocean conditions. 
 

Pacific Coast Central America Pilot Charts

Pilot Charts are focused on cruising conditions, there is a diagram for every month of the year for each section. They are on the Panama Posse site under each country example https://panamaposse.com/colombia
colombia pilot charts

Every one of these maritime areas have a graph for every month. You can in this way utilize the graph to find out about the breezes and flows in every month.  Example Prevailing weather in  Colombia in January

PANAMA POSSE <-> CREW 

 

1) Please note that you are responsible for your CREW

2) You are also responsible for REPATRIATION and CLEARING FEES

3) We strongly consider a “flight home” deposit – typical last minute tickets are $$$$  

4) Each CREW will have answered our initial questions but we do not know if these responses are truthful.

5) If anything goes wrong onboard, the buck stops with you. As captain, you are responsible for the total operation of the yacht including safety of crew, yacht and environment.

6) You are responsible for the conduct of the crew as well. And, of course, you are the navigator.

 

If you would like to receive CREW resumes please notify the Panama Posse via email and we will forward you CREW seeking vessel information >>
