Balboa Yacht Club

We tied up on a mooring at the Balboa Yacht Club this morning, Sunday. Just before 2:00 AM this morning we pulled the anchor at Isla Pacheca, two miles north of Isla Contadora, to catch the rising tide. The current gave us quite a push and with a little wind in the sail we lowered the engine RPM to just above idle and still made to the anchored ships just after sunrise. We threaded our way thru the ships to the entrance to the Panama Canal channel and arrive at the Balboa Yacht Club shortly after 9:00 AM. The buoy that we are on is real close the the Bridge of the Americas and we have a great view of the ship traffic in the channel about 200 feet away.
