SONFLOWER navigated about 3/8 of a mile today. From the mooring at Marsh Footbridge No 163 to the mooring at Marsh Footbridge No 163 via the winding point at Grimsbury Arm.
The purpose of this unusual journey?
SONFLOWER is going to the Crick Boat Show and that means going North. She needed to point in the opposite direction to how she is normally moored. A little over a quarter of a mile backwards saves two miles, two lift bridge operations and two locks! That's about two hours cruising forwards!
