We made it through the first set of 3 giant locks, that lifted us up 84feet into Gatun Lake, with no problems, and at 9:30 last night we moored up to a giant mooring ball, and our pilot left the boat, to go home.
At 7am this morning a new pilot will arrive to guide us the 22miles to the next set of locks that will lower us down to the Pacific side. We should pass under the Bridge of the Americas and into the Pacific Ocean at 3pm Saturday 19th April!!
Lets hope it works!!
