I'm doing this crossing for the first time, there will be two of us on a 42ft Bavaria. We start out around the middle of next week (24-25 March).
Was wondering if anyone goes the same way so we could make up some sort of a fleet, safety-wise
Hi, I was intrigued by your query so I posted it with a link on the Cruising World Facebook page. Check for responses there, too.

Galapagos is in the doldrums. I've heard of boats becalmed for days there, with boats 25 miles further south blasting along in strong trade winds with the Humbolt current. Best sail south from Galapagos till you hit the trades, then head west.
