Miami to Northern Panama.
Must have references for safety purposes only but does not need fancy qualifications. What skills do you have?
Share in food and cruising fees only. Must prove funds available to fly out of Panama and passport acceptable for countries going through, valid of at least 7 or 8 months.
I plan to have at least 2 persons and possibly 3. So you would pay your share of the expenses as 1/3rd or 1/4.
Hope to leave around 2nd week of June, 2016 or when I line up crew.
1-Miami to Caymens via west side of Cuba then possibly Limon Costa Rica, then to Panama.
2-Miami to Windward Passage to Port Antonio, Jamaica to Limon, CR, to Panama.
Must have funds to fly out of Panama.
I expect it to take a minimum of 3 weeks up to 7 weeks or more depending on winds.
If, however the crew wants to stop for a while, and all are agreeable, then no problem.
I plan to use a weather forecaster, and route planner, Chris Parker out of Florida. He is considered the guru of Caribbean sailing and is used by delivery captains, and cruisers and sailors alike. Very reliable.
