Yacht Club at San Lorenzo

I went here in search of a small boat to transport myself and my bike from Colon (Panama) to Cartagena (Colombia).


A helpful San Francisco couple (Bruce and April) ran the club, and tried to contact an American who does such trips including carrying up to two motorcycles on deck, without luck. After some research I discovered that he was actually in Cartegena at the time. As the trip takes around 5 days each way, it would have taken a minimum 10 days to get there, even assuming that he didn't stop for Christmas - too long for me. A shame because the trip goes via the San Blas off northern Panama - a beautiful archipelago of some 360 islands.
