MOONBEAM: Pacific Circuit 2013
[ Contents ]
ALMOST READY TO GOKEN

The crew has assmbled and is ready to depart for the Marquesas. Pictured from left to right are Ken, Jane Petro, Jim Drinane and Betty Bishop. Behind is the Bridge of the Americas. Today has been a frustrating day with three visits to immigration at different locations and two visits to the port captain (again at different locations) in order to get our clearance out of Panama. Finally accomplished after six hours, we brought Moonbeam to the dock to get our fuel, only to find out that they might not have enough for us. We are now back on our mooring hoping to get a call that they got a delivery of diesel and still fuel us this afternoon. If not, our departure will be delayed until tomorrow AM. STAY TUNED FOR UPDATES.....

With Ken and the crew from Florida to Panama having returned home, our friends, Denise, Caren and Becky (right to left) have flown down to Panama to babysit Moonbeam. Ken and the new crew for the next leg will all assemble in Panama at the end of this week to get ready for the major crossing to the Marquesas departing on Monday March 11. The blog updates along with daily position reports will restart then. The new crew will be Jim Drinane, Jane Petro and Betty Bishop.
