Yeah! here we are now anchored in the Pacific!
We left at 5.30am on the 6th, met by the pilot advisor and having our handliners on board. We passed under the new bridge before meeting the two monohull to be attached to us and getting into to the locks going up to the Gatun lake.
We were just standing pretty close behind a gigantic Panama cargo ship, and the doors were closing right behind us. The locks filled up as we are going up to gatun lake! Impressive!
Into Gatun Lake, a super protected area, where only very slow sailboats can spend the night, unable to do the trip in one day. One third of the Gatun Lake fresh water is used a drinkable water to Panama city. So you go through but can not dump anything in the lake. Though we did not see any bird!
When we got to Gatun lake, the two monohull went their way and we kept going, following the super cargo before overpassing it and reaching the last locks to get attached to a small ferry and standing behind a barge and two tow boats. This time the locks are going down.
The last lock open on the Pacific, and we still have to go under the Bridge of the Americas before we can anchored at the Balboa Yachtclub, drop our advisor and the handliners.
Here we are now in the Pacific! ready to keep on!
We did some video and as soon as we can we will do something with it!
