Watch This Space

We're counting down the days to our Panama Canal transit. We're meant to pick up our Transit Advisor some time after 1400 Panama time this Saturday, the 25th, on the Atlantic side, and are scheduled to enter the blessed Pacific on the 26th.

If you're family, or just bored, you can follow our progress through the Canal at marinetraffic.com. (We're the Galactic that is the US-flagged sailing vessel.) And there are web cams of the locks here. I just checked and it looks like only the Gatun locks camera is working. We should be going through that one on Saturday. (Take a screen grab, Mom!)

Just one hiccup at this point. The yachtie couple who were lined out to be 2 of the 3 extra line handlers that we need (Alisa is the 4th) did not have an up-to-date yellow fever certificate and so could not make the flight back to Panama from their visit home to Brazil. We've found one confirmed replacement, but are scrambling to lock in the last one. (So to speak.)
