I have attempted to go through the Panama 3 times, and every time I have been thwarted by a lack of committed crew! I am considering trying for a fourth attempt.
My last boat is in Tahatti, but unfortunately not with me.
I am thinking about buying a new (secondhand) boat of around 45 to 50 feet to have a final attempt.
The purpose of this message is to find out if there is any enthusiasm from the membership, to join me for some or all of such a venture.
A brief word about me:
I am a fit 74 year old, single.
I went through Dartmouth Naval College, so have a huge theoretical understanding of seamanship and navigation.
I have spent the last 10 years afloat in my Amel 48 Ketch and have completed 4 Transats as skipper, one with a crew of 1 novice directly from Falmouth Antigua to Falmouth UK.
I do not know everything, but I am reasonably experienced.
I would hope to leave Canaries in the Autumn 2021.
