For the past 5 years, the Balboa Yacht Club on the Pacific side of Panama has hosted a Pacific Puddle Jump party in March to honor and celebrate those voyaging yachts and crews who make the annual migration across to French Polynesia.

Co-sponsored by Tahiti Tourism and Latitude 38 magazine, the event has grown every year. Because of that growth, this year the event will be held both at Balboa Yacht Club, and for the first time, at Shelter Bay Marina, at the Caribbean entrance to the Panama Canal.
