Girls took over Zingaro! We are exploring Colombia with our Brazilian friend Idé. She’s never been sailing before, so we wanted to introduce her to this beautiful wet world! Since Kim was on the boat long enough now, she captained the boat for a few days while James enjoyed himself. Leaving Cartagena was a good idea. We really missed the beach and some clear water …
After so many things going so horribly wrong we really needed to have some good times. And so we did!
Enjoy our 18th episode.
Captain & James 😉

Well… I can check “swimming in the Panama Canal” off the list. Didn’t even know it was on there. Don’t recommend it. Here’s the story:
Our challenge: transiting the canal without an agent
So we’re trying to do this on a budget. The least possible amount you can pay is $1875, with $891 coming back after 3 weeks if you don’t hit anything, or cause a big delay.

Please welcome Kris Knabel (one of our first supporters on Patreon) came down to Grand Cayman to sail to Jamaica with us. With the new and improved rudder we let the wind fill our sails and GO!
Unfortunately… in true Zingaro fashion our OTHER rudder fell off. Oops …
