Shelter Bay Marina on the Colon side (I dont know where the rest of the mob
are going since the Panama Canal
Yacht Club closed)
Balboa Yacht Club is still open.
Remember, there are more people coming west than east and as the Hurricane
Season is on the go in July in the caribean I dont think there will be many heading to the Carib. So best to go to Colon. (You need safe accomodation in Colon, its a bit of a nasty town, but dont be daunted)
Line handling is a wonderful experience!
Before our boat
went through we line handled on another boat
- a cat - and had a ball! The photo
below is after the last lock on the Pacific side: the Bridge of the Americas.
For any cruiser circumnavigating the world it is a very special moment.
Take your camera
, take some nibbles and a drink for the long bus trip one way, the boat should supply you food
during the transit which is overnight both ways.
