Jamaica to Panama

Submitted by Jim Lott.
Jamaica to Panama This passage is often quite rough with fresh winds and a north setting current. Reports from yachts that ventured further west towards Honduras suggest that getting back to the east is challenging. There have been several recent reports of local small craft working in groups to attack and loot yachts sailing through the channels.
