The West Coast of Panama

Wow, what can I say, we have come to terms with our missing motor and hopefully my anger doesn't take away from how much we enjoyed the west coast of Panama.

We started off sailing from Panama City to the Las Perlas, then we headed down the east side of the Las Perlas, off around Punta Mala where we had some very rough weather  (40+ knots). From around the peninsula until we got to Costa Rica the conditions were amazing. We got to fly our spinnaker and spent every day with dolphins and turtles. Most nights we anchored off a small tropical island all by ourselves. The water off of Isla Secas was so cear and you could see huge tropical fish just cruising around.
