Namani at Sea
The travels of Nana, Markus and Nick aboard Namani
Sneak Preview
30-Dec-2011, Shelter Bay Marina, Panama

Got a sneak preview of the Canal transit over the past two days on Astarté with Barbara and Michael, and Sue and Lenny from Windancer. A very interesting and fun experience, also very helpful to get a better idea of what to expect for our own transit. Namani was officially measured on Thursday and our transit date has now been set for 14JAN. We have enough boat projects lined up to keep us busy until then...

Shelter Bay
27-Dec-2011, Shelter Bay Marina, Panama

Arrived in Shelter Bay (across from Colon at the Atlantic entrance to the Panama Canal) today, after a nice sail from Portobelo and after weaving our way through the cargo ships anchored off the Canal entrance.

Markus will have dry-run through the Canal tomorrow and Thursday as a line handler on Astarté. We still plan on going through during the first half of January. Very nice to be here now - makes the Canal transit feel very real and imminent... stay tuned...

Our favorite (and also the only) bakery in Portobelo... notice the Maine license plate on the door!
