Rhapsody to Central America - Itinerary
Below is a table showing the major stops I've planned on
the trip, and when I tentatively think I will be there.
For each major stop (in light blue)
there is the arrival date and the departure date for the given city.
Between the major stops (in green) are a number
of smaller stops, usually including at least one or two primitive anchorages.
In some cases the major stops are very close together and only a day or two apart
by sea. In other cases, Rhapsody will be travelling hundreds of sea-miles
over multiple days, and be stopping at more than a few primitive
spots in between, so please read the itinerary carefully,
if you are thinking about joining us :-)
Also, it is important to note that this itinerary is tentative,
and will always be that way, even though I will try to re-post
it as things change and the trip progresses. Sailing, by
it's very nature, dependent on the weather, is unpredictable,
and I've already decided that I will never compromise
safety in order to meet a schedule. Therefore,
if you are planning to join Rhapsody, it will be
important to be in close contact as your date approaches,
and to do everything possible to remain as flexible about
the specific dates for as long as possible, so plan on buying
your plane tickets later, rather than earlier!
That said, I really do hope you'll get to join us on the trip,
and once we've set out, we're bound to get there sooner or later,
so please really do consider it !
