Canal Interlude

We are scheduled to transit the Gatun Locks (up to lake Gatun from the Atlantic) on January 4 around 1000 to 1300 PST. Then we spend the night anchored on Lake Gatun and go down the Miraflores locks to the Pacific on January 5 around 0500 to 0800 PST time. According to our agent yachts are no longer allowed to transit in one day unless they are 125 ft or larger. We are renting 12 plastic wrapped tires for $3 ea to supplement the 10 fenders we have aboard and our four required line handlers were easily found here in the marina from among the many cruisers coming and going.

Many of the Canal webcams are out due to lightning strikes but here are some links:


Feliz Navidad prospero ano y felicidad.
