Hi Fabio,
I am hoping to add to the adventure of going to Costa Rica to include the purchase of a guitar in CR. Like sailing, it's the voyage that is as important as the desination.
Are you expecting to come to Annapolis soon?
Lo estaria' divertido para conocer usted.

I'm still a long way off from visiting CR and hanging out with Fabio in Puntarenas, but I'll probably need another acoustic guitar by then. I've been looking at some fábrica de guitarras in CR, but I was wondering if y'all have any recommendations?
One I found in San Jos'e near Cinco Esquinas is Guitarras Guzman.

Hello to all in Puntarenas. I'm currently spending more time in the US (NYC) and visiting Costa Rica and will enjoy sailing in the Gulf

As far as the forecast for the Regatta, you can expect NE winds, forecast is for less than 10 knots, but you know how the wind speeds up near the Punta. we will see, I heard of bad weather in Agujas and Punta Leona the last two days due the Norteños, Friday is expected with similar pattern which will decrease Saturday.

Heavy winds here in the central valley. I calculate that puffs are more than 65 mph.mMy daughter in Guanacaste says that Papagayo winds broke strong.
Bether sail with a miniskirt this days of november. Temp is low also (14 Celsius at night) I have an especial marineweather report from the Meteorological Institute

As part of the learning process to visit Costa Rica, here is the very positive link to the US State Department page to Costa Rica.
A good step 1 for any foreign visitor to Costa Rica.

Spring Sailing: That's 5 days a week from March through May...Some weekends for regattas & a 3 day DELMARVA prior to doing the Annapolis-Newport Race, Marion-Bermuda, Marblehead-Halifax.
Busy schedule, but Costa Rica is a chance in a lifetime!

Cabin eyebrow windows

Good morning gang,I have received both port and starboard cabin windows from Beneteau for replacement as the existing leak and are badly etched. Beneteau has referred me to the dealership for installation but I'm having trouble getting a response.   Does anyone have any experience replacing these and any recommendations. JohnSee More
