Tuesday 4 August. 8 miles, 13 locks.
A nice but windy day. Double locks all the way. The first two we paired up for then we stopped for water. Good that we stopped for water but then did the rest by ourselves. With two extra crew on board we made good progress at our pace not having to worry about others. The wind made it tricky getting into some locks with a bit of crashing the sides at times. After the first 10 we had a lunch break before getting to the last 3. Between 2 and 3 we pulled into a boatyard for a pump out, gas & diesel. Then Trevor took the tiller and brought us through to Braunston. Following a busy day it was into the pub for drinks and dinner. A short walk through the town then back on the boat for an early night. All pretty tired.
