Ryan and I recently realized that we are now officially 6 months into our yearlong adventure (4 months living on board and 2 months preparing for departure) and more than halfway through. Cliche it may be, but time has certainly flown by! During our time in Mazatlan we have, by necessity, spent several late nights discussing and researching what we should do and where we should go to complete our journey. The cruiser’s dilemma on this side of the Pacific is one that we have wrangled with, off and on, for at least the last month. The dilemma is this: the cruising season on the Pacific coast of Mexico and Central America is limited to November to April/May (one must be mindful of hurricane season and either get the boat to a safer weather area or take the boat out of the water and put it in dry storage, aka “put it on the hard.”) So, if you are cruising the West Coast south, you must choose to (1) go through the Panama Canal, preferably by December, and get to a safe part of Western/Northern Caribbean and out of hurricane zone by April/May; (2) sail the boat north into the Sea of Cortez and far out of hurricane danger; or (3) go out to the South Pacific–which coincidentally has their safe season (i.e., no cyclones) from April-November.
Hello, we are the Dixon Family! We are adventure seekers, travel bugs, and a cruising family. We just returned from a year of living and sailing our home, S/V Dakota + globetrotting by land and air with our two school-aged boys, whom we boat/worldschooled along the way.
We are advocates of dreaming big and living with intention and purpose to realize those dreams. Hopefully we can inspire you to dream it and do it! We always have more travels and adventures abroad to come, so follow us and come along on the journey!
