From the river mouth to Paris is 360km. We split it into 3 days of 120km each, 6/7 hours per day except the 1st day which was 4/5 hours due to the higher speed limit. I'd recommend it to anyone

It looks great but there was a lot of slow speed cruising?

Speeds varied. At first we were as law abiding as possible until we got the measure of the place. Our slowest sections were 8 knots in Rouen and Paris. In other areas, although the limit varied between 10 and 15 kts, we generally got away with 15 as a minumum (and a sneaky 40 when no-one was looking and I'd fallen behind the others a bit )

Just calculated the fuel costs.... 1,050 for 708 miles. Unfortunately our biggest fill-ups were at the most expensive port 1.72 euros per litre.

At least he's keeping an eye on her, quite comforting to see all the bits and bobs are still there
