Going for it….

We’ve decided that we are going for it!  I think that while my wrist is by no means back to normal, it is up to most of my boating ‘duties’, bar perhaps, pulling hard on a rope!  We plan to leave Gayton Marina around the 29th or 30th August, in time to get to Barrow on Soar for the Beacon Boats meet on 7th September.  So, watch this space, I’ll soon be back to blogging regularly for a few weeks.  If anyone is planning on travelling up that way from the Northampton area and would like to travel with us to share those difficult wide locks then please get in touch.


  1. Hooray!!! Look forward to seeing you for the Gathering!!

    Glad to see your general duties include the bar and pulling hard on ropes!!!

  3. Us too, Ally xx

    Jill, of course!! xx

  4. Hiya. Looking like we will miss the meet. Now in Llangollen as we had plans to meet my sister here this weekend... She has now cancelled, leaving us out on a limb so to speak! We are heading back via the Soar, but will not be able to make up the time to hit the gathering.

  5. Ali & John. So sorry not to see you at the gathering - we will be heading back the long way around via Fradley so we may well meet you on the way.
