Passage from Jamaica to Panama
04/18/2010, Caribbean Sea

After 10 days in Port Antonio we prepared ourself for the 600 NM haul across the Caribbean Sea to Panama.
Our handycap was a broken Autopilot so we needed to steer by hand for the next 5 days.
This time the weather was kind to us with light winds and almost flat sea. We arrived Portobelo just SW of Colon in the morning.

Passage from Luperon, Dom. Rep. to Port Antonio, Jamaica
04/03/2010, Port Antonio, Jamaica

We left Luperon in the afternoon on 03/31/2010. The weather forecast "promised" good weather with 15-20 Kn of wind for our passage to Jamaica.
The Windward Passage greeted us with 30 kn and 12 ft. following sea. Getting closer to Jamaica the wind calmed down and after 350 NM we arrived at Port Antonio in Jamaica.

The "KOKOMO" Song
12/29/2009

"KOKOMO" song by the Beach Boys
******************************
Aruba, Jamaica ooo I wanna take you
Bermuda, Bahama come on pretty mama
Key Largo, Montego baby why don't we go
Jamaica

Off the Florida Keys
There's a place called Kokomo
That's where you wanna go to get away from it all

Bodies in the sand
Tropical drink melting in your hand
We'll be falling in love
To the rhythm of a steel drum band
Down in Kokomo

Aruba, Jamaica ooo I wanna take you
To Bermuda, Bahama come on pretty mama
Key Largo, Montego baby why don't we go

Ooo I wanna take you down to Kokomo
We'll get there fast
And then we'll take it slow
That's where we wanna go
Way down to Kokomo

To Martinique, that Monserrat mystique

We'll put out to sea
And we'll perfect our chemistry
By and by we'll defy a little bit of gravity

Afternoon delight
Cocktails and moonlit nights
That dreamy look in your eye
Give me a tropical contact high
Way down in Kokomo

Aruba, Jamaica ooo I wanna take you
To Bermuda, Bahama come on pretty mama
Key Largo, Montego baby why don't we go

Ooo I wanna take you down to Kokomo
We'll get there fast
And then we'll take it slow
That's where we wanna go
Way down to Kokomo

Port Au Prince I wanna catch a glimpse

Everybody knows
A little place like Kokomo
Now if you wanna go
And get away from it all
Go down to Kokomo

Aruba, Jamaica ooo I wanna take you
To Bermuda, Bahama come on pretty mama
Key Largo, Montego baby why don't we go

Ooo I wanna take you down to Kokomo
We'll get there fast
And then we'll take it slow
That's where we wanna go
Way down to Kokomo

Aruba, Jamaica ooo I wanna take you
To Bermuda, Bahama come on pretty mama
Key Largo, Montego baby why don't we go

Ooo I wanna take you down to Kokomo
