John Cuzner has sailed many rallies and Atlantic crossings, sailing over 100,000 nautical miles, most of them offshore, in three different sailboats with the name J’Sea. The Fort Lauderdale to Puerto Vallarta journey via Panama, was made on J’Sea, a Jeanneau Sun Odyssey 44i (45.1 LOA). John and Liz will share with us the highs and lows of this trip.

Departing Florida in March 2016, they were involved in a refugee rescue with the US Coast Guard, and had a passenger pigeon take over the helmsman’s seat. Passing the Florida Keys and the east side of Cuba, they stopped in Jamaica after a four day journey.

Then J’Sea headed directly to the Panama Canal. After a week waiting for a canal transit date, the transit was quite eventful - hear the details! Also learn about the new expanded canal project underway. Following Panama, J’Sea made her way to Puerto Vallarta with new crew, then was loaded on a truck for Bellingham and home.

For those thinking of sailing east rather than south and west through the Pacific, you will appreciate John and Liz sharing their experiences.
