Ocean Spirit departed from St. Croixn USVI on November 5th and arrived Colon, Panama November 9th.
Eco Team member Sierra Frye-Keele writes: “After 96 hours of motoring (only 1.5 hours were spent with sails up due to light wind), we’ve made it to Panama! Ocean Spirit is a safe and sea worthy vessel, very comfortable for travel. We ate well, slept well, and encountered only one crazy lightning storm.”
“Seas were pretty calm the entire way, little to no wind, and a bit of rain here and there. It’s pouring now in Panama, and we have a few days to wait before our clearance to cross the Canal. We’re in a nice marina (Shelter Bay), with a pool, luke warm jacuzzi and showers, great restaurant, and spotty Internet access. All is well:) ”
We will be keeping track as they continue their journey crossing through the Panama Canal and up along the pacific coast off Mexico and then across a long stretch towards Hawaii.
