25 Apr ET Come Home: Gatun Locks
Transited the Gatun Locks today. This is a set of three locks that separates the Atlantic (Caribbean) from Lake Gatun. Passage was made with Shannon Dann pulling and a canal-provided assist tug (Cerra Jefe) pushing. We created quite a stir on the Canal, with a lot of employees coming out for selfies or group photos. Probably provided an interesting transit for the various container ships heading the other way. We moored in Gamboa Rain Forest and will continue through the Pedro Miguel and Miraflores Locks tomorrow (Tuesday) toward the Pacific.
