There have been many sailboat that have done this trip, currently I have a friend in Chile on his sailboat. Most sailboats when rounding counter clockwise follow the route described above of the Galapagos, Robinson Crusoe Island etc which is not the route I want to take for many reasons (distance, current, fueling up (the Galapagos are crazy $$)). But no matter how you slice it there are some long passages involved since Peru is to be avoided. I guess my main question is: is there a inside current to the Humboldt current? Is it recommended or is there a lot of fishing traffic (20% of the worlds seafood comes out of the Humboldt current.) Ports of call, parts , provisioning, access to fuel, safety, red tape, etc.
