So we have finally decided where our next big adventure will take us and we invite you to be a part of it. We will have space for 6 people onboard our boat during our sail from East cost of Panama to Sea of Cortez (Baja California) in Mexico.
This will not be a “trip around the corner” to the next anchorage- this trip will be over 2500 miles long and we will spend 8 whole weeks together.
If you are looking for an adventure far away from mass tourism and hysterical schedules set by different tour operators, if you are willing to sail the waves instead of flying first class – this trip might be something for you!
The trip in short
After crossing the Panama Canal together we will sail to Isla del Perle just south west of Panama City. This place is really worth checking out and this is where we will wait for favourable winds that will take us up to Costa Rica.
During our slow cruise along the coast line of Rosa Rica we will explore as much as we possible can before it is time to continue our journey up north to Mexico.
The plan today is to pass Nicaragua, Honduras, El Salvador and Guatemala to save a bit of our precious time together. In case we get requests from our crew and everyone onboard find it interesting to visit in one of these countries we might adjust our plans.
Sea of Cortez (Baja California) is our main destination but we have a lot of Mexican coastline to cover before we arrive there. Before we leave Panama we as a crew will sit down and do the detailed planning of the destinations we wanna visit.
We have never been to the Sea of Cortez before but we have heard many great things about the place we feel we have to check it out for our self. From what I have heard a guess is that we will spend more time under the surface than above – the marine life is suppose to be spectacular.
We can’t tell you exactly what we will experience together, we haven’t been here before and this is not a normal weekend cruise so we won’t be able to predict what will happen and when- this is why we love this lifestyle!
What type of people are we looking for?
You should have a genuine interest in traveling, exploring and understand the difference between a charter Holliday and an adventure. You should also have the skillset of smiling when things are not perfect! To travel 8 weeks together on a sailing boat requires a lot of social skills.
Sailing background or fancy diplomas in not required- after this trip you will know all there is to know about sailing and life on the sea.
A bit about the boat
The boat is equipped with 4 cabins and 4 toilets/showers + 1 crew cabin, 1 big saloon and multiple outdoor areas to hang out on. You will find everything you need and much more onboard, air con, fridge, freezer, generator, hot water, water maker, stereo, tv, dive compressor, dive equipment, snorkeling gear, paddle boards, spear guns and fishing gear.
The boat is also equipped with all imaginable safety equipment such as life raft, emergency transponders, Sat-phone, dual navigation system, dual vhf system and a big ass trauma kit if an accident should happen onboard the boat.
WARNING – BABIES ONBOARD!!!
Oh yeah- just a heads up!! We do have 2 kids onboard the boat. At the time of this trip Olivia will be 4 years and Theodor will be 1,5 year old. Olivia is a wild one and will not go unnoticed. So think twice for applying if you can’t stand a wild baby girl!!
Olivia has way over 15.000 miles in her logbook and thinks everyone lives on the oceans. She knows her way around a boat and is besides being hyper active she is never a problem. Theodor is more or less born on the boat and when it is time to set sail he will be more than prepared to rumble.
Is this a charter boat?
Oh no!! We will all act as crew members, we all take part in everyday duties such as sailing, cocking, cleaning and resupplying the boats food storage. Just one big happy family!!!
