General Meeting - Transiting the Panama Canal
Our speaker at the next General Meeting is Jonathan Ross from Jonathan Ross Sailing. His website offers charters from Croatia, Greece, France, Corsica, Italy, Sicily, Sardinia and the Canary Islands as well as other yachting services. So I think we are lucky he is in Tasmania for the GM.
Transiting the Panama Canal in a yacht had always been an exotic thought for him as he was a bit mystified by how it all actually worked and intrigued by it's history. It's a marvel to think you can enter on the Caribbean side, pop out at the end after 24 hours and be in the Pacific Ocean. Sure beats going around Cape Horn. He had the opportunity to go through the canal about 5 years ago and if you are curious about how it all works, his talk will take you through the preparations required, going through the locks and the canal itself plus a few anecdotes from along the way. This is one talk not to be missed.
