David Allouch, from Sail Tahiti, joined other industry professionals from the newly formed South Pacific Sailing Network, to meet with cruisers in Panama and Mexico. On the agenda, services and infrastructure to help cruisers during their months in the South Pacific.
Each year, the intrepid, the adventurous and perhaps the dreamers, set sail from Panama. A truly international group of sailors, heading west into the South Pacific.
With the start of the tradewind season, skippers and crews head towards the Galapagos, the Marquise and on to Tahiti.
The Pacific Puddle Jump, with Latitude 38, has long supported sailors following this route. More flexible than a rally, puddle jumpers sail west between February and May, with safety support provided through a safety database and the new Cruiser Sat Net.
Vallarta Yacht Club, Pacific Puddle Jumpers will soon be en route to Tahiti and beyond.
