Through the Canal

Updated: May 11, 2023

Editor's note: Crew member Gordon Manning has now posted a nicely edited video of the Panama Canal transit on YouTube. Find it here:

We will have to wait to get the full details from one of the crew (Tom, Gordon, Peter, Tara) who sailed with the Doug through the Panama Canal, however I wanted to share some of the pictures that have been shared with me during this passage. If you’re on Instagram, there were a number of good photos there as well.

This one is my favorite. It looks like Lady Slipper is a little bug about to be squashed by the big guy.

They started through the locks in the evening. They tied up next to a larger catamaran on their way through. They went through three locks one right after another.

Heading into lock 2 another 80 feet up:

The lock closes behind lady slipper:

Day 2 started earlier so the crew was able to handle lines in the daylight.

Through the canal – they have arrived:
