Ribbing to Paris - The Gallery

1/ Passing under the Pont du Tancarville near Le Havre
2/ La Frette getting a cheeky free ride off my wake, Erin estimates a 20% fuel saving by doing this, hence why he spent most of the next 200km sat there
3/ Rouen - a major sea port and very commercialised.
4/ Pont Jean D'Arc in Rouen, the centre span lifts for big ships but this doesn't happen often, it's all river barges upstream of this point.
5/ The upstream side of Rouen from whence my plotter became fairly useless.

1/ Wouldn't be my 1st choice when naming a boat
2/ Approaching I'le le Croix in Rouen
3/ There's plenty of crap floating about in the Seine, we all took a few hits on the keel or gearbox, one of my props will need a clean up.
4/ There's plenty to look at on the banks, helps pass the time.
5/ French ingenuity at it's finest

1/ Approaching the 1st lock, Amfreville...
2/ ...and back out the other side
3/ A lot of the barges had cars on the roof, as well as jetski's and other toys. They appear to be used as the family home, complete with wife and kids.
4/ Ok, not quite 10kts but nobody said anything

1 - Matt doing his Kate Winslet impression
2 - The return journey leaving Paris
3 - Gets a bit choppy in the estuary at times (one of the few occasion she was actually at the wheel)
4 - All too much for Matt. Somehow managed to fall asleep on La Frette on the way back to Jersey in a F3/4
