That was a very interesting experience, not as difficult as people say, and quite beautiful once on the lake. We spent the night in the middle as it was too late for us to finish it in daylight. So we were told to anchor off Gamboa and watch the continous passage of container'ships. Next day we passed the last locks and stay overnight in Balboa and then sail to Las Perlas Islands.
