Day three of the Ocean to Ocean Cayuco Race has three legs to it.  The race starts at the .  The first leg begins at the old Gamboa Airstrip at around 7:30 a.m. and goes about a mile to the Gamboa Dredging Division. This leg replaces the Miraflores Lake stretch which was eliminated last year as a result of the low level of the lake. We were not able to use the locks because of it. The second leg takes the boats through the Gaillard (or Culebra) Cut. This is the part of the construction of the Canal which caused the greatest difficulty due to the huge slides such as the Cucaracha Slide. This segment leaves the Gamboa Dredging Division at around 9:00 a.m. or thereabouts and the first boat will arrive at the Pedro Miguel Landing about one hour and fourteen minutes later. From there the boats are trailered to the South End of Miraflores Locks where they are started to end the race. They arrive at the Diablo Landing about 15 minutes later. That puts us at around 2:00 p.m. or thereabouts. Narration by Louis Husted

There will not be enough time to make up thumbnails for each day of the race, so I will just list the photos by name.  Click the photo's name to view the photo.
