We are heading off to Panama City today! It's been a busy few days in Ixtapa/Zihuatanejo, Mexico getting the boat ready for the first big leg. It's about 1600 miles from here to Panama City. We are thinking of going closer to shore until we get to Bahia de Tehuanapec so that we can time our crossing of the bay with gentle winds. The forecast for this week is looking ideal to make this crossing without delay. Time allowing, we want to stop at Cocos Island famed from Jurassic Park and home to many species of sharks. We brought our dive gear! We plan to arrive in Panama City around May 2 or 3rd, where Dan and Jeff will meet us to transit the canal.
Don't forget that you can keep an eye on us via the SPOT tracking link at the upper right hand corner of the blog.
See you all in Panama!!
