Panama Canal Transit

Thu 29 Apr 2010 00:32
We are under orders for the Panama Canal transit and have a scheduled time to meet the advisor (Pilot for small boats) of 17.30 local time - 22.30 UK time.
There are live web cams at the locks:
Click on the Gatun tab for the first lock entry which would be about an hour after meeting the advisor if these things went according to plan, so anytime within 1/2 hour before to 3 hours after probably!
This is a short video by someone else (who we've never met!) going through, but we viewed the video for tips!
We would expect to go through the Miraflores locks around lunchtime on Friday (1700-1900 UK time).
Love to all
Murray and Caroline
