This episode we finish our charter, say goodbye to our new friends, and explore mainland Panama. We really liked it here, and stayed for quite awhile.
When we left the beautiful San Blas, we got caught in some serious weather on our passage to Puerto Lindo.
We’re running out of food, fuel, and sanity on this most difficult passage. We’re here to tell you, this is not a passage for the feint hearted, we saw lightning right next to the boat, waterspouts, and rain rain rain. But there’s light at the end of the tunnel, we made it to Panama on a beautiful day.
We continue our journey to Panama, but not alone! With five guests we explore the San Blas Islands. A grounded ferry, coconuts en mass & scary storms: That’s what you are going to get with the 26th Episode of s/v Zingaro!
Dancing, with tears in our eyes… ¡Adios Cartagena! We’re leaving this dirty, cheap & wonderful place. But not without cruising the streets at night one last time.
Of all the places we have been on our journey so far, Cartegena stands out. So much culture offer during the day & the night and so many young people that build up their life just the way we do in Berlin or California, withstanding the troubled past and presence of their country.
Kimmi and I just got back to civilization from the San Blas Islands. Wow, they’re pretty. Got drone shots under sail. Followed Kim with the dink while she was kiteboarding, underwater stuff. Super fun couple weeks. Good to get away, that’s what this is all about …
Coming soon: Next episode of Livin la Vida Broka and Sailing Zingaro – Episode 12
Months of joy and moments of horror… Grounding the boat, losing both rudders, ripping the sails… It certainly was not an easy trip so far. But the rewards I got were incredible: freediving the kittiwake in the Cayman Islands, seeing the sun set over the mountains in Jamaica, cruising the Colombian coast and, of course, the San Blas Islands, Panama!
