21st June - 1st July 2008


The very skilled and intrepid crew have confirmed the extra 3 days of their adventure, which will now last until Tuesday 1st July.  Alan has devised a cunning route to test the crew to their very limits.  The route will be some 173.5 miles long, including 192 locks and their chances of success is far from certain.   The never attempted before route is to be known as "The Giant East Midlands Ring".  Click here to see the master plan of their route.

Saturday 21st June (light drizzle during the afternoon ) Sunday 22nd June (a pleasant day with some sunshine, but very windy)


As can be seen, considerable effort was required to operate the large paddles of these locks.
