Punta Leona to Golfito and the Golfo Dulce
Leona to Drake
This was another mix of light air and swell and night time panga fishermen. There was a lot of slow sailing and more motoring than we like to admit.
Drake to Golfito
This was all motoring for us as we wanted to guarantee getting there in one daylight session. You may be able to settle into a light air sail if you are willing to spend an overnight or two.
Plenty of large debris and logs in the water.
Less and less swell as you get deeper.
You might get some diurnal winds you might not. We had a good mix of motor and sail.
Lots of rain often in the afternoon. It’s nice to get to the anchorage before it starts. It can be rain REALLY HARD.
It’s deep close to shore.
Many anchorages are on really tight shelves before a big drop off. This means you may need to anchor with shorter scope so you don’t swing on to the beach.
Still lots of debris in the water.
Marc and Laura.
