Foxton locks

With very strong winds this morning we set off early down through the locks, so early the locky hadn't unlocked the top lock when we arrived there. Fortunately when Hadar is fully loaded she handles easily in the wind as she has a lot of boat sitting in the water, 2'6" along the whole boat, and as the sheeting is sloped, unlike the steep cabin sides, the wind just glances off it and over the top. We are now moored at one of our favourite moorings just through the foot swingbridge down the Harborough Arm. where we will be for the weekend.
