A lazy start this morning as we didn't have to get started until afternoon. The weather forecast gave a 20% chance of rain all day and the sky looked as if they could be right.
Another boat had joined us on the pontoon last night, and they also we heading for Cromwell today.
At just gone 12.30 we all started engines and four of us headed off into the river. For the first half of the journey the water was slack and we made about 5 MPH. As we continued the flow of fresh from Cromwell started to make itself felt and we were slowed to 4 MPH.
There is a water ski centre along this strip of river and they were out playing.
We all arrived at Cromwell at about 4.30, and the lockie penned us through. Two of our group were continuing their journey, while the remaining three of us decided to break for the night here.
