May 3, 2007 - Watch Our Panama Canal Transit on Sunday or Monday

We are scheduled to transit the Panama Canal from Sunday, May 6th through Monday, May 7th. You can watch us by clicking on this link:

There are cameras at three locations along the route. We will transit the Gatun Locks at some point between 6pm and 8pm (central time) Sunday night. After anchoring overnight in the lake in the middle of the canal, we'll transit the Miraflores Locks Monday morning. The third and final camera is located at the Centennial Bridge. We'll likely be rafted up with other boats as we pass by the first two cameras, but we'll be motoring or sailing on our own as we pass under the bridge and enter the Pacific Ocean.

Here are some details to help you spot us: Mata'irea has a white hull, white decks and white canvas on deck. Our topsides will be protected by fenders and tires for the transit. Our fenders used to have navy covers, but have bleached down to a lovely dusky purple color in the tropical sun.
