Route

Your route without a set schedule !

We plan to meet and leave from Barra de Navidad, Jalisco, MX in late November, early December of 2019
and plan to arrive near the Pacific side of the Panama canal in May of 2020.

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

We will sail in a leisurely frog leaping fashion from the Costa Alegre on the Pacific Coast of Mexico- towards Panama.
Alternatively the “Counter” Posse meets in Panama (Vista Mar Marina)  and heads NW starting in October of 2019.

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.

CHECK THE ROUTE
Panama Posse Route

There are over 350 verified anchorages along the way.
Here are some of the mayor stops you will be able to day hop most of the way

Northbound (counter) Posse

Northbound vessels have a different timing and get a chance to meet all the southbound vessels – there are specific weather related issues and of course prevailing winds and currents are challenging.
Leave Panama at the end of October and make your way up the coast – keep a close eye on swells.
