            1. In piloting a ship through the Panama Canal, there are sixteen straight segments ("reaches") you need to guide your ship/craft through. As you progress through the canal you will see the next set of signs/lights on the far canal bank that you navigate towards, then at the right point, you shift to the next segment.
