19 miles, 27 locks
Catching up on the blogs after the BCN Challenge!
On Bank holiday Monday we set off down the Crow backwards as with the locks being such a tight fit we didn’t think we’d fit the other way around. We had help from the crew of Team Tawny Owl, with whom we’d also had a lovely breakfast and dinner the night before (thanks Sue!) Annoyingly we managed to unship the rudder going down but James and Andrew managed to get it back in pretty quickly.
Andrew had kindly offered to stay and help us down the Wolverhampton 21 as well which was appreciated especially as it was quite damp.
At the bottom we said goodbye to Andrew who was off to catch a train from Wolverhampton and set off North up the Staffs and Worcester. We tied up at Gailey.
