Colon, Panama

After 11 days at sea the boys and "Biscayne Bay" arrived in Colon, Panama. They had a good trip, but very little wind to assist their travels. They had some sloppy seas with occasions of big 5 to 6 metre swells and sometimes 50 knot squalls, but the "big old girl" pulled through and bought them all safely to harbour. We are booked for a Panama Canal Transit for Tuesday, 30th June 2009. Lisa and Anastasia rejoined the boat to travel the canal together and to restock the boat ready for the big "transpac". Now we are this far there is no turning back, so watch out Australia here we come!

Now we're are getting jealous, the Panama canal and the Galapagos Islands. Enjoy, we're thinking of you

Sounds like your having a great trip, what an adventure! Looks like the "Big old girl" was a good choice and she's keeping you safe and well. Keep up the blog, love reading and seeing what your up to.
All the best Vince and Denise

Exciting stuff. Can't wait to hear of your adventures going through the "canal". Perth is wet and windy and not good sailing weather at the moment. Keep the blog going.
