We were ready to head to the staging area for the transit today and received a call from our Agent around noon to let us know that we were being bumped from the transit schedule. We happen to be here with the Oyster Rally around the world. This rally has 28 Oyster sailboats that began in Antiqua and are making their way to the Pacific. Everyone told us there was no way we would get through this week because they have preference. Our Agent pulled strings to get us the transit date of today. However, when it came down to it, the Panama Canal Authority could not find enough Canal Advisors for all the boats that were scheduled. Each boat is required to have an Advisor on board through the transit. There were 12 Oysters plus us and one other boat scheduled. Because we were the last ones to book the date they bumped us until tomorrow. We have been told there is “no way” we will not go tomorrow so we are keeping our fingers crossed! The schedule for the locks will be the same as the previous post just beginning tomorrow, March 15.
