Great pics Erin, the first two pics really show the meaning of a mirror glass sea.

Hoping to get back Sunday or Monday, but the forecast is still a little bit uncertain for the open sea part. Have to be downstream of Rouen by Friday evening as the river is being closed for 3 days for racing and we don't want to get trapped the wrong side and not get home in time for work next week.

It's been a hard slog and some of our plans were a bit ambitious, with a few problems along the way, but at least we made it

Full reports with photos and some video once we get home.
